Inovating Through React Native Apps with Fender featuring Joshua Couch, VP of Engineering and Michael Garski, Director of Platform Engineering

Adopting a serverless architecture brings a new set of challenges for an organization regardless of where they are in their cloud/devops journey. This presentation will share Fender's experience on the topics of development, testing, building, configuration, deployment and monitoring of serverless applications. Starting with a brief overview of the Fender Play React Native mobile app, Joshua and Michael will review one of the AWS Lambda-based services that supports it, including the design considerations and trade-offs made during development. Testing a serverless function can be quite different than testing a traditional microservice - in some ways simpler, in some ways more complex - and the presentation will describe the testing performed on these serverless systems. Learn about Fender's build and deploy pipeline that is gated on the execution of integration tests, and how they configure the services. Lastly the presentation will cover how to monitor a serverless application, which is more similar to monitoring a traditional microservice than you might think.
