Rust is such a cool language, even though it might take a bit to get the hang of it. But trust me, the payoff is huge.

My Serverless & AWS Lambda talk at Node.js Dublin January 2017

Last January I had the pleasure to share the stage with the great Padraig O’Brien to talk about how we use Node.js, AWS Lambda and the Serverless framework at Planet9 Energy.
