Understanding techniques to reduce AWS Lambda costs in serverless applications
Lambda offers a number of techniques that you can use to minimize infrastructure costs whether you are just getting started with Lambda or have numerous functions already deployed in production. When combined with the lower costs of initial development and ongoing maintenance, serverless can offer a low total cost of ownership.
Python 3.10 runtime now available in AWS Lambda
You can build and deploy functions using Python 3.10 using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, AWS SDK, AWS SAM, AWS CDK, or your choice of Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
Optimizing AWS Lambda extensions in C# and Rust
This post demonstrates techniques that can be used for running and profiling different types of Lambda extensions. This post focuses on Lambda extensions written in C# and Rust.
Introducing AWS Lambda response streaming
Today, AWS Lambda is announcing support for response payload streaming. Response streaming is a new invocation pattern that lets functions progressively stream response payloads back to clients. You can use Lambda response payload streaming to send response data to callers as it becomes available. This can improve performance for web and mobile applications. Response streaming […]

Implementing an event-driven serverless story generation application with ChatGPT and DALL-E
This post demonstrates how to integrate AWS serverless services with artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, ChatGPT, and DALL-E. This full stack event-driven application showcases a method of generating unique bedtime stories for children by using predetermined characters and scenes as a prompt for ChatGPT. Every night at bedtime, the serverless scheduler triggers the application, initiating an […]
Managing sessions of anonymous users in WebSocket API-based applications
In this post, you learn how to keep track of user sessions when using WebSockets API and not lose the session context when the user reconnects again. Apply learnings from this example to improve your user experience when using WebSocket APIs for web-frontend and mobile applications, where internet connections may be unstable.
Building serverless Java applications with the AWS SAM CLI
This blog post shows how to build Java applications with the AWS SAM CLI. You learnt about the default build mechanisms, and how to customize the build behavior and abstract the build process inside a container environment. Visit the GitHub repository for the example code templates referenced in the examples.
Server-side rendering micro-frontends – UI composer and service discovery
This post looks at how to use the UI Composer and micro-frontends discoverability. Once this part is developed, it won’t need to change regularly. This represents the foundation for building server-side rendering micro-frontends using HTML-over-the-wire. There might be other approaches to follow for other frameworks such as Next.js due to the architectural implementation of the framework itself.
