Hi, welcome to another weekly update!
MEAP update for Production-Ready Serverless
We have released 4 new videos on my video course Production-Ready Serverless!

Remember, whilst the course is still in the MEAP, you can get 40% off the face price using the code ytcui.
I have also turned this course into a classroom setting, so if you’re interested in having me run this as a workshop in your company, then drop me a line via the Contact page.
