Time flies when you’re having fun, and we’re already into the second half of 2015!
On a personal level, it’s been a great 6 months, I have spoken at 10 conferences in as many cities and as you read this post I’m at Polyconf in Poznan!

If you missed them here are my takeaways from the conferences from 2015 so far.

I’m an AWS Serverless Hero and the author of Production-Ready Serverless. I have run production workload at scale in AWS for nearly 10 years and I have been an architect or principal engineer with a variety of industries ranging from banking, e-commerce, sports streaming to mobile gaming. I currently work as an independent consultant focused on AWS and serverless.
