‘Serverless’ Back-end Development for Front-end Developers

With the arrival of node.js, it became viable to run JavaScript on both the client and the server. But it still required knowledge of servers, processes, deployment and a host of other skills. But with the release of AWS Lambda, and similar “serverless” computing services, this is no longer the case. Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of JavaScript can write reliable and scalable back-ends.

And the interesting thing is that front-end developers have a big advantage over traditional back-end developers because this brave new world is completely event driven. Join Erwin in exploring how skills you already have make you perfectly suited to writing performant, reliable and scalable back-end services.
