Running Serverless

Hi everyone. This mailing list has been quiet for a few months, because I've been busy writing a new book. It's done now, and as a thank you for being a subscriber, and an apology for not sending new newsletters over the last few months, I'd like to offer you a 50% discount on the eBook version.
You can get the PDF, ePub and Kindle versions at half-price until 1 August from LeanPub. Just click on the button below - it will automatically apply a discount code to the URL.

The book is also available in several other formats (the discount offer applies only to the LeanPub store, unfortunately). Here are some other places where you can get the book:

The book is a technical tutorial. It will be useful for two groups of developers and architects:
  • People who have no previous experience working with serverless applications and are interested in learning about emerging cloud architectural patterns
  • People who already work with Lambda using other deployment frameworks and want to learn about AWS SAM, the Serverless Application Model
The contents of this book are based on my experiences with MindMup, a collaborative mind-mapping system that was one of the early adopters of AWS Lambda. MindMup moved to a serverless model from an application hosting service throughout 2016, in order to benefit from on-demand scaling. We reduced operational costs by about two-thirds while significantly increasing application capacity, speeding up development and reducing time to market for new features. 

This book is structured as a walk-through for building a practical application. We start from a simple static API and gradually grow it into an online image-resizing service, ready for millions of users, with all the supporting operational and infrastructural capabilities. The application closely resembles real-world systems that many of you will develop in your jobs. This will give you a good structure for your own work, and you will be able to almost copy parts to get a head start. As you discover how to create and deploy different parts of the application, you will also learn about key aspects of Lambda and related services, important tips, techniques and tools for running serverless.
