Planet9energy.com is a new electricity company building a sophisticated analytics and energy trading platform for the UK market.
Since the earliest draft of the platform we took the unconventional decision to go serverless and build the product on top of AWS Lambda and the Serverless framework using Node.js.

In this talk I want to discuss why we took this radical decision, what are the pros and cons of this approach and what are the main issues we faced as a tech team in our design and development experience.
We will discuss how normal things like testing and deployment need to be re-thought to work on a serverless fashion but also the benefits of (almost) infinite self-scalability and the piece of mind of not having to manage hundreds of servers.

Finally we will underline how Node.js seems to fit naturally in this scenario and how it makes developing serverless applications extremely convenient.

Very interesting talk about serverless, lambdas and other cloud related stuff.
Clear and complete coverage of the topic.
Just one suggestion for Luciano: Please stop using ACLs!

Well explained. I would have liked more insights on drawbacks and pluses of this kind of architecture and its deployment.

Great talk.

Speaker covered the basics of serverless + shown how they implemented stuff so it wasnt only theoritical stuff but 'from how we do it' bag.

I'm still not sure it would make sense for me to switch but now I'm much more informed on how it works, what are the good and bad sides.

The speaker was appropriately concise at some moments and detailed enough in the other. It's been a pleasure to hear what he has to say.

I wanted to try serverless for a while now and this gave me an excellent base to build upon. Thanks for making the learning curve more easy to climb.
