Who is this presentation for?

  • Software developers, DevOps engineers, and architects

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with a public cloud cloud provider, such as Amazon Web Services

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to architect and deploy microservices in AWS
  • Understand serverless concepts and their applications


From functions to containers to databases, serverless is a huge paradigm shift. The ability to only pay for what we use and not worry about underlying infrastructure is very tempting to developers and DevOps engineers, and the rate of innovation in this area has been very rapid across all major public cloud providers. Serverless architectures are the natural evolution of microservices design. While Lambda has become synonymous with serverless in AWS, there are several new and upcoming patterns that take serverless architectures to the next level.

Manish Pandit explains how to identify these patterns and put them to use. Using Marqeta’s efforts to move its payments infrastructure to the public cloud as an example, Manish explores the services that Marqeta considered, customized, hacked around, and successfully implemented as a part of this move.
