AWS Serverless - what has changed

In 2018, I wrote a series of posts about my experience working AWS Serverless for a global high volume public facing web application. It took us about a year and a half, about 15 software engineers, and a lot of stumbling to get it working. In 2016, when we started, AWS Serverless was newish. The community was abuzz about how cool it was. The Serverless Framework was the only real tool that developers could use. There were just no examples in the wild. At FastUp we continue to develop business applications on the AWS Serverless stack of API Gateways, Lambda and Dynamo Database. In this post I am going to cover how our approach to building and deploying Serverless has changed over the years.
