Key takeaways from my article

A serverless platform allows you to run your application including computing, storing, and networking without the need of spinning up and managing a single (virtual) machine. Being able to focus on software development instead of operating a fleet of servers is the primary driver behind serverless. Dividing your application into small functions is necessary when following a serverless approach. Making use of microservice architectures helps you to achieve that goal. Serverless is made for event-driven architectures.

I'm an independent consultant, technical writer, and programming founder. All these activities have to do with AWS. I'm writing this blog and all other projects together with my brother Michael.

In 2009, we joined the same company as software developers. Three years later, we were looking for a way to deploy our software—an online banking platform—in an agile way. We got excited about the possibilities in the cloud and the DevOps movement. It’s no wonder we ended up migrating the whole infrastructure of Tullius Walden Bank to AWS. This was a first in the finance industry, at least in Germany! Since 2015, we have accelerated the cloud journeys of startups, mid-sized companies, and enterprises. We have penned books like Amazon Web Services in Action and Rapid Docker on AWS, we regularly update our blog, and we are contributing to the Open Source community. Besides running a 2-headed consultancy, we are entrepreneurs building Software-as-a-Service products.

We are available for projects.
