Going from 0 to 1,000 with AWS Lambda

Video description

Alexander Wood (Amazon Web Services) live-codes a serverless web application, including asynchronous events, on AWS Lambda using the Ruby runtime. Using open source tools such as the AWS SAM CLI, the AWS SDK for Ruby, and the Aws::Record Ruby gem, Alexander goes from a blank folder to a web application that has high availability and can scale to thousands of requests per second.
