A few of you have asked me whether I was on Patreon and how you can support me in my work. And for a long time, I couldn’t think of interesting perks to offer you in return. But now that I’m spending a good part of my time as an independent consultant, I am much more able to offer you my time and help you on your journey towards serverless!

Please check out my Patreon page and support my work.

My patrons would have early access to my articles and can get involved with my creative process and help me choose topics to cover.

And as I create new video courses, my patrons would get access to them for free as well, including my existing courses Production-Ready Serverless (value $79.99) and Complete guide to Step Functions (value £19.99/$25.00).

With the higher tiers of patronage, you can also get 24/7 access to me via a private Slack channel and get 1-2-1 consulting/mentoring as well.

Hi, I’m Yan. I’m an AWS Serverless Hero and I help companies go faster for less by adopting serverless technologies successfully.

Are you struggling with serverless or need guidance on best practices? Do you want someone to review your architecture and help you avoid costly mistakes down the line? Whatever the case, I’m here to help.

Hire me.


Skill up your serverless game with this hands-on workshop.

My 4-week Production-Ready Serverless online workshop is back!

This course takes you through building a production-ready serverless web application from testing, deployment, security, all the way through to observability. The motivation for this course is to give you hands-on experience building something with serverless technologies while giving you a broader view of the challenges you will face as the architecture matures and expands.

We will start at the basics and give you a firm introduction to Lambda and all the relevant concepts and service features (including the latest announcements in 2020). And then gradually ramping up and cover a wide array of topics such as API security, testing strategies, CI/CD, secret management, and operational best practices for monitoring and troubleshooting.

If you enrol now you can also get 15% OFF with the promo code “yanprs15”.
