Serverless Framework v4 and SNS, SQS is rocking pre:Invent 🚀☁️ #42
IaC tool with a new model and rolling updates from SNS and SQS
Love the pre:Invent season because it’s filled with so many updates! SNS and SQS team have been on their toes with a bunch of updates.
In other news, Serverless Framework announced a newer version v4 which comes with a pricing model for companies with an annual revenue over $2M using Serverless Framework. I admire the definition of who pays and for whom it’s still open-sourced but is this what DevTools are heading into?
📢 What's new in AWS Serverless
🚀 AWSome content to learn from
Pubudu Jayawardana in the 2-part series of Custom retry logic with SQS and Lambda explains how SQS delayed messages with an intermediate dead letter queue for retrying the errors. In the 2nd part, using EventBridge Schedulers to reschedule the errored ones for retrying again.
Learn about the transactional outbox pattern with DynamoDB Streams by Elias Brange where you overcome the problem of distributed systems and persist the data changes using DynamoDB Streams to drive the flow with events.
Distributed maps support a great way of working with S3 objects but when the S3 bucket is in a different account, you would need a workaround as explained by Zied Ben Tahar’s Step Functions’ distributed map with a cross-account S3 access.
Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a must. To leverage IaC for Lambda functions, you’d have to know what are the different tools for deploying Lambda with IaC. Kasun de Silva does a comparative analysis of SAM, Terraform, and Serverless Framework with the pros and cons of all the tools.
Lee Gilmore writes about Microservice in Serverless talking about the different types of a microservice with monolith Lambda v/s microservice with multiple micro Lambdas and how decoupling helps! And also communication between components.
Thought about single-table design on DynamoDB? Pete Naylor demystifies the modeling pattern of single-table design talking about the pros behind storing data in the same table but the reality of multi-table and smaller items would be more cost and performance effective.
Arshad Zackeriya and I (Jones Zachariah Noel) are back with another episode on The Zacs’ Show Talking AWS where we got all hands into AWS Application Composer with the standard IaC resources.
