From Big-Band Web App to Serverless Bebop: Jazz up Express with AWS Lambda

This talk will take a real-world look at what makes serverless so jazzy. Walking through the refactor of a Node Express app used internally at Mapbox, I'll share how we transformed a hard-to-maintain web app into a collection of independent AWS Lambda functions, and why: lower bills, better code, and happier teams. We'll cover when, why and how to take your architectural jazz to the next level and enjoy the artistic freedom of serverless functions - and listen to a little music along the way!
