Surviving Serverless in Real-Life

Lars Roewekamp, open knowledge

Writing serverless functions is quite easy. And also combining some of them to build up a more complex system is not too complicated at all.

But what happens if these tiny functions are not working as expected? How to trace and monitor each function by itself and the system as a whole? Is there any change to debug? And what about testing? Do we always have to deploy to the cloud or are there any local solutions to emulate the productive environment? And by the way, how can we automate all of this?

Lots of questions are waiting to be answered.

Required audience experience

basic knoweldge of serverless computing

Objective of the talk

The audience will learn how to handle and “survive” serverless scenarios in real life. During the session I will demonstrate with the help of a demo application (aws lambda based) how to test, trace, monitor and debug servlerless functions.
