A collection of techniques that will enable the audience to heavily optimise their Lambda functions. This talk will reflect some of the optimisations present in my post: Plus new suggestions like a new extension I’m working on right now for remotely loading ES modules

AWS No Code Challenge


Senior software engineer: Trustpilot 

AWS Solutions Architect Pro | AWS DevOps Engineer Pro | AWS Security Specialty | AWS Subject Matter Expert

As AWS has been adding more and more direct service integrations I thought it would be interesting to try and create a service using just service integrations without writing any code. Spoiler it was!

Rather than just a CRUD API I recreated one of my teams actual production workloads including an API, workflow orchestration and events.

This talk will show how I built the workflow using these AWS services:

  • API Gateway

  • DynamoDB

  • EventBridge Bus

  • EventBridge Pipes

  • EventBridge Scheduler

  • SNS

  • SQS

  • Step Functions

Detect operational anomalies in Serverless applications with ML-based Amazon DevOps Guru

Vadym Kazulkin

Head Of Development at ip.labs, AWS Community Builder

In this talk we’ll use a standard serverless application that uses API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, SQS, SNS, Kinesis, Step Functions, Aurora (Serverless) (and other AWS-managed services). We’ll explore how Amazon DevOps Guru recognizes operational issues and anomalies like increased latency and error rates (timeouts, throttling and increased latency). We will also explore DevOps Guru “Proactive Insights” which recognize configurational anti-patterns like missing failure destination on Kinesis Data Streams or DLQ on SQS or over-provisioning of AWS services like DynamoDB tables. We’ll also integrate DevOps Guru with PagerDuty to provide even better incident management.

Amazon DevOps Guru analyzes data like application metrics, logs, events, and traces to establish baseline operational behavior and then uses ML to detect anomalies. The service uses pre-trained ML models that are able to identify spikes in application requests, so it knows when to alert and when not to.
