I’ve had a great conversation with a buddy of mine that is launching a new service and while he is not a technical person he came up to me asking about serverless and if it could have an actual impact on his startup. Naturally, I got very excited about the topic and proceeded to list all the benefits of serverless technology and how decentralized technology has revolutionized the industry, so on so forth.

Great writers use metaphors to get their point across so let me give that a try real quick. Bugs are nasty little pests, mm’key? It’s hard to get rid of them but apart of just spraying poison everywhere, there are only a few options left. One of those options is using a natural predator to those bugs, a predator like birds. So birds can help you get rid of bugs. I work for a company called Dashbird that help developers debug their AWS Lambda applications. See what I did there?

Like any other creation in progress or in the making, serverless applications, need to be tested and monitored. How else would you know if what you’ve created is providing desired results? Before putting your “newborn child” out into the world, you must make sure that it’s ready for the world. Software or even hardware of any sort will first be tested before it goes to mass production, and the same goes for your serverless applications.

To get some serious work done, we usually need to prepare for it. “Baby steps first,” they say. In our niche, these “baby steps” would be countless small jobs that need to be done before we can start with our main project. Proper preparation(try saying this 5 times fast) is the key to success, but after we’ve achieved our primary goal, there will always be something to do to keep it steady and flowing.

Dashbird integrates closely with AWS to bring visibility into serverless applications. By mapping applications resources, importing CloudWatch logs and integrating with AWS X-ray it's able to provide all pillars of observability with no performance overhead or code changes.
