Our first video on AWS serverless is out. We went to AWS Startup Day this past week. And we have thoughts on the serverless startup ecosystem.

Hi there,

Our first tutorial video and we went to AWS Startup Day in Boston. Let's get started with a recap of the past week.

Intro To Serverless Video

We've published our first tutorial video! It's an introduction to serverless architecture and Serverless Framework.

Serverless DevOps: Intro To Serverless

We've been watching other people's videos as well as casually chatting with people about what they like and don't like. While there's an appeal to "Get started in 5 minutes!!!" sort of video, we don't think those are particularly effective. Too many people are left with a "What the hell did I just watch?" feeling. 

We're less concerned with how much we can throw at the viewer and more concerned with how much they'll retain afterwards. We don't want to create people who can repeat words, we want to create people who have no skills. For those reasons we don't try and cram too much into the video. We also take our time to explain what we're doing and why.

If you've watched it, let us know what you think in the comments section. We'll be sure to take your feed back for the next ones!

AWS Startup Day Boston

This past week was AWS Startup Day in Boston. As a result we were able to meet Jeremy Daly and James Beswick, both from the local serverless community, in person finally.
