Word from the author
May is all about the saying "May the force be with you!", this month has been exciting with global AWS Summits happening and I'm excited to announce that I'm sharing the speaker deck along with great minds of AWS, AWS Community Builder and AWS Heros.
Serverless apps are often understood as hard to maintain as there is no common infrastructure repository that is available, so I've authored a blog post which explains the why Serverless apps should be developed with Infrastructure as Code as the center of it.
And until next time, register for AWS Summits happening globally and up-skill with a lot of sessions and demos.
Happy building on AWS! GO Serverless!
