Delivering at pace while evolving a Serverless architecture

A real client case study in how to deliver a project with fixed cost, scope, and deadline. Demonstrating:

  • event driven architecture using AWS Lambda
  • how to iterate and evolve a serverless architecture
  • performance tuning and scaling a serverless solution
  • observeability of a serverless solution
  • dealing with ambiguity
  • deliver with a small highly focused team across UX, Data, API
  • build and maintaining working software from the start of the project (walking skeleton)
  • continuous feedback, using empirical data from running your software to guide where to spike next and evolve
  • examples of being pragmatic, doing the simplest thing, to reduce delivery risk
  • shift left and address security and production operation concerns early in the build
  • integration with Snowflake
