This is the last part of my FaaS like Pro series, where I discuss and showcase some less common ways to invoke your serverless functions with AWS Lambda.
You can find [Part 1] here — covering Amazon Cognito User Pools, AWS Config, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, and AWS CloudFormation.
And [Part 2] here — covering AWS IoT Button, Amazon Lex, Amazon CloudWatch Logs, and Amazon Aurora.
In the third part I will describe four more:
A few weeks ago I’ve shared the first part of this series where I analyzed in depth some less common ways to invoke AWS Lambda such as Cognito User Pools, AWS Config, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, and AWS CloudFormation. You can find [Part 1] here!
In the second part I will describe four more:
If you feel like skipping the brief introduction below, you can jump straight to the first four trigger with these shortlinks:
When AWS Lambda became generally available on April 9th, 2015 it became the first Function-as-a-Service out there, and there were only a few ways you could trigger your functions besides direct invocation: Amazon S3, Amazon Kinesis, and Amazon SNS. …

Day two at re:Invent 2017 was incredibly packed, crowded, and exciting. My favorite announcement so far is the new AWS AppSync, as it aligns with one of the most promising (yet somehow controversial) design principles adopted by the serverless community: GraphQL.
If you are not familiar with GraphQL, we recently explained how to write GraphQL Apps using AWS Lambda, and hosted a webinar about the Love Story between Serverless and GraphQL. Here’s a quick look at what you need to know about AWS AppSync.
21 speakers, 6 hours of technical sessions, and 125 attendees.
That is not bad for a no-profit conference organized in less than 8 weeks, is it?
We started organizing JeffConf Milan just a few hours after JeffConf London was over and it’s been a very challenging & educational journey (trust me, August vacations did not help!). We announced the final date and location at the beginning of September, and we went sold-out a couple of days before the event!
The Italian community — supported by the Serverless Italy Meetup, and many other local meetups! — has shown tremendous interest…
Early-adopters, pioneers, and experts will gather in Milan to discuss Serverless technologies and share real-world experiences, use cases, lessons learned, side projects, and much more!
In a way, serverless is the newest niche of a larger niche of IT called Cloud Computing. While for some it represents the future of software development, many have a more critical or skeptical point of view. Of course, constructive criticism is always well accepted, but such critics often come from non-tecnical concerns or obsolete beliefs…

During the last few months, I realized that most developers using serverless technologies have to rely on blind choices or manual tuning to optimize their Lambda Functions. In this article I will present: the data I collected, the open-source project I created to solve this problem, and the design ideas that guided me.
I launched this poll a few weeks ago, and I managed to collect almost 160 responses thanks to the community who helped me share it.
It turned out that more than 50% of the responders just go for the…
“Amazon Machine Learning is a service that makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to use machine learning technology.”
After using Amazon Machine Learning for a few hours I can definitely agree with this definition, although I still feel…
The Serverless community gathered last Friday in London to share ideas, knowledge, problems, and plans for the future.
I can tell it was an amazing event, completely community organized and accessible to everyone. We welcomed an extremely passionate crowd of 120+ attendees thanks to our generous sponsors (including AWS, IBM, Serverless, and more!), …
