Serverless Heroes Down Under - Stackery Visits Australia!

Last week I was battling jet lag and this week, an inbox of unanswered emails. But I’m also marveling at the quality of the AWS community all over the world. I had the privilege of speaking at ServerlessDays Sydney the week before last, and along with the amazing conference talks, I also got to see firsthand just how much of the globe is involved in pushing forward serverless using AWS technology and how excited they were to share what they were learning.

I’d deploy a stack with a VPC for testing, then quickly forget about it.

Software Engineers: Confidence Matters Just as Much as Ability
