The talk started with sharing everyone experience in using AWS Lambda Serverless services and the speaker shared his own personal experience in managing legacy systems, issues faced and the move towards serverless architecture.

By running serverless architecture, developers can concentrate on business logic and application development. No need to worry about the infrastructure management side. Infrastructure, it's scalability, high availability, redundancy everything will be managed by its own.
