Running latency-sensitive serverless applications, such as web and mobile back-ends, has been challenging to do effectively. The recently launched Provisioned Concurrency for AWS Lambda is here to help. Provisioned Concurrency keeps functions initialized and hyper-ready to respond in double-digit milliseconds, at any scale. In this tech talk, you'll learn how Provisioned Concurrency helps mitigate cold starts, how to use it effectively, where it shines, and where it doesn't.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how cold starts work and how Provisioned Concurrency can help
  • Learn when and how to use Provisioned Concurrency effectively
  • Understand key strategies to optimize your function performance

Who Should Attend?

Developers who are already using AWS Lambda, developers who have considered AWS Lambda but were wary about cold starts, developers interested in building serverless applications
