Running Serverless Clojure Applications with AWS Lambda w/ Dan Anolik

Clojure on AWS Lambda is like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of the functional programming world. Lambda gives you an easy way to run your functions in the cloud without needing to provision or manage any servers. It's also really cheap and extremely scalable. In this short presentation we'll walk through building and deploying a Clojure microservice using only AWS Lambda and API Gateway. We'll also discuss ways that your Lambda functions could support larger applications in an AWS environment.


Dan Anolik has been doing a mix of software development and solutions architecture in the Portland area for over 19 years. He has worked as a consultant for building cloud native applications and is a fairly recent convert to Clojure. Away from the keyboard Dan plays mandolin in a bluegrass band and has been a long-time wilderness search and rescue volunteer.

Clojure Lightning Talks

This month we'll have member provided lighting talks. We have two scheduled so far and room for more. Get in touch if you want to do one also.

First we have John Skilbeck talking about converting a traditional Clojure project meant to be run on a server or on docker into a AWS Lambda runtime, while leaving the original project's source code intact. He'll provide a brief background on AWS Lambda and how that works, and then a walkthrough of the project.

Then we'll have JR Heard's talk: An Introduction to Specter

Specter is a library that allows you to elegantly and performantly manipulate Clojure/Script data structures. In this sure-to-be-compelling lightning talk, we'll learn why Specter exists, how to use it, and how to write our own Specter "navigators".

June PDX Serverless Meetup
Stackery HQ

The Portland Serverless Meetup is back! New hosts, new location, same great group.

Interested in speaking at a future event? Message us and let us know! We'd love to have you.

This month we'll have two talks:

Self-healing serverless applications

Serverless applications increasingly involve distributed systems where errors and bottlenecks can have significant downstream impact. This can be compounded by the ephemeral nature of FaaS offerings in which errors can be difficult to diagnose retroactively. In this session we'll discuss instrumentation and "self-healing" architectural patterns that will improve resiliency of your application and drive improved observability and performance.

You get serverless. Your team gets serverless. But does your organization get serverless?

You know a serverless architecture is the right solution for a project, but your VP of Engineering is pushing back. They are probably doing this because it’s not obvious how a serverless architecture will fit into the organization’s existing development, testing, and release processes. Their intuition that new techniques are needed to effectively maintain and extend serverless architectures is spot-on. But they can be convinced serverless is the right approach if you show them successful patterns.

Fireside Chat with Kelsey Hightower

Join us as we kick off OSCON with this fireside chat community event (open to all, no need to be an OSCON attendee!) with Kelsey Hightower and Nate Taggart.

Nate and Kelsey will be exploring the impact, trends, and future of serverless from the perspective of both cloud providers and the developer community. This is an event you won't want to miss!
