December started with another edition of the re:Invent conference in Las Vegas. My colleagues and I have started a tour around dozens of cities around the world to offer a re:Invent re:Cap, check your local AWS User Group on Meetup for details.
Let me know if you want to add a city and date in January.
Developer’s often asked me what was my favourite announcement from the 100+ made that week. Being an adopter and advocate of serverless computing, my favourite announcement was AWS Lambda Layers and Custom AWS Lambda Runtime. You can read the blog post from Danilo for more details.
This allowed developers to bring new languages to Lambda, check out these solutions :
And probably more to come, let me know if you have developed a custom runtime to add to this list.
See you at a re:Invent re:Cap event near you!
