From Monolith to Serverless: Rethinking your Architecture

It’s easy to understand the benefits of Serverless but it’s not always easy to understand how this will impact our software architecture.

In this talk we will deconstruct a set of requirements and walk through the architecture of both a traditional service-oriented architecture and a modern serverless architecture.

You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to design event-driven systems and serverless APIs, along with some alternatives to the traditional RESTful API layer.
