Title: Serverless computing, nanofunctions, & Amazon Lambda

Abstract: Breaking up large monolithic applications into smaller services has become an accepted industry practice. It improves scalability and makes it faster and easier to get enhancements and fixes into production.

However, when you try to put this into practice you may be faced with code that's difficult to untangle, and service candidates that look more like mega-services than microservices. Nanofunctions are an intriguing new alternative.

This presentation will cover:
* serverless computing - the hype vs. some reality
* the concept of breaking up a monolith into nanofunctions
* concrete examples using Amazon Lambda

Disclaimer: this is a concept and code that I'm still experimenting with. It is not live in production.
