    PDX Serverless Architecture Meetup: AWS CloudFormation: A Stack in the Sky ☁️

    Stackery

    Join us in February for a fantastic introduction to AWS CloudFormation from Senior Software Engineer at Nike, Yves Gurcan!

    From Yves: "Tired of zipping and updating your Lambda functions by hand every time you want to deploy to production? Yeah, me too.

    What if I told you that there is a solution out there that lets you deploy your entire application to AWS from your local machine? What, you don't believe me? But this tool even has a cool aerial name that's like super on point because it's about cloud computing! Too good to be true? Great news! This service exists and it is called AWS CloudFormation.

    Let's talk about infrastructure as code! In this presentation, Yves will walk us through how to create a stack with CloudFormation... and then delete it! Together, we will thoroughly explore the capabilities of this service through the AWS Console. We will look at the CloudFormation template of an example application and decrypt the hieroglyphs 🐦 ☀️🏺 (also known as YAML CloudFormation) that deploy your resources to AWS. We will build things, break things, and have a good laugh!

    Bonus: After demoing how CloudFormation works, host Yves Gurcan will also showcase how Stackery can help you visualize your stack while you are writing it in Visual Studio Code!"

    About Yves: Yves Gurcan is a certified AWS Cloud Practitioner and a senior software engineer. Expert in all things JavaScript, he enjoys building bleeding edge web applications in React and Node. He also is the maintainer of an open-source library that enables browsers to play MIDI files: https://github.com/yvesgurcan/web-midi-player.

    Serverless Architecture Meetup

    Stackery

    This month Chuck Jewell from Sightbox will be sharing how Sightbox is solving legacy app and database transitions using the strangler pattern and GraphQL.

    Legacy app strangulation with GraphQL on AWS AppSync

    Database concepts like linearizability and serializability sound abstract, but they can have real-world consequences. Chris Fauna from Fauna DM will give us a look at consistency in the real world, and how flaws can impact your applications. We’ll take a tour of FaunaDB’s globally consistent transaction pipeline and compare it to the alternative approach taken by Google Spanner.
