Serverless software development is inherently architectural.
We configure the building blocks provided by the platform, and connect data with code as it flows through the system.
Serverless Patterns provide a general, reusable solution to commonly occurring problems within serverless software design. The solutions are AWS-centric, but the concepts are transferrable.
Function as a Web Service
In the beginning was the Lambda
Control and Authorize access to resources at the API Gateway
Abstract access to platform services behind API Gateway
Improve performance by caching at the API Gateway
Reduce service charges and boilerplate code by validating data at the API
Queue Based Event Distribution
Fan-out and distribute events to multiple consumers to allow decoupled distributed processing
Queue Based Load Leveling
Decouple requests and protect downstream services using a queue to enable asynchronous processing
Asynchronous Request Reply
Expose asynchronous process state by decoupling request and response
