About this Episode

On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Founder Alex Williams is joined by Stackery CEO Nate Taggart. Earlier in the year at ServerlessConf, the two discussed the makings of Stackery, and how it has standardized on top of the AWS Serverless Application Model to the benefit of both its developers and enterprise customers.

Prior to making the move to standardize on AWS SAM, Stackery used a tool known as AWS Cloud Formation in its stack.

"Amazon realised that because Cloud Formation was so powerful, that it was also very intimidating. So they released AWS SAM to focus on three common serverless patterns: Reading an API endpoint, one is creating a function on Lambda, and the other is to create a database, which they call a table. Actually a DynamoDB table. So SAM gives you, instead of having to configure all of the settings for all of your services, it gives you a nice on ramp into serverless and into infrastructure-as-code," said Taggart.
