I was in Serverless Days Boston yesterday and would like to give a big thanks to the organization team for this great day! James Beswick spoke about their story of how they started to get rid of servers. He stated that either you start writing serverless with a lift and shift of existing architecture, or with a greenfield project, you start with one giant function which does everything.

Since its inception back in Re:invent 2014, serverless has always been a good choice because of its pay-as-you-go pricing plan. This is especially great if you do not have consistent loads to your serverless architecture, and you have instant spikes. However, the cost can snowball in serverless architectures if you don’t keep an eye on it.

Since its announcement by AWS Lambda, Golang has become a great alternative to the already existing runtimes. In addition to its rapid growth among the community, now Golang preserves this growth also in the serverless world. In the fight against the villain of the serverless applications, cold-starts; Golang seems to perform better than the other compiled languages available in AWS Lambda.

Serverless is still an unexplored realm for many developers and the idea of transitioning from traditional servers to serverless may look like a daunting task. To ease this shift many communities have come up with some really good resources, whether it be articles or frameworks. In this blog, I will be introducing one such microframework for Python, developed by engineers at AWS, called Chalice. I will not go into a lot of details in this blog but highlight important parts of the microframework.

Failures are inevitable. Just as we need to test our application to find bugs in our business logic before they affect our users. We need to test our application against infrastructure failures. And we need to do it before they happen in production. and cause irreparable damages. The discipline of Chaos Engineering shows us how to use controlled experiments to uncover these weaknesses.

Filter AWS Lambda functions with respect to many different parameters such as cost, duration, error count and many more. Create your own query either by SQL-like language or with query helper and save it for later usage or share among your team.
