First of all, I want to wish you all a merry Xmas and happy new year! And thank you for your readership and support over the years.
Now that re:invent 2019 has come and gone, I have updated my course Complete Guide to Step Functions to include the latest announcements:
  • Step Functions 101: added a lesson on the newly announced Express Workflows, a high performance and low cost variant of standard workflows.
  • Building state machines: added a lesson on the Map state, which lets you implement the fan-out pattern with ease.
  • Building state machines: added a lesson on how to build Express Workflows using the Serverless framework.
For the next 2 weeks (ending 11:59pm UTC on 10th Jan 2020), you can get the course for half the price at only £9.99. You can sign up to the course here.
Also, since I recently achieved my 1st stretch goal on Patreon, all my patrons would receive a copy of the course for free. Once again, big fans to all my patrons for supporting my work!
