Main Conference (May 19th, 2022)
Building high scale API from scratch with 2 people, half CTO and no dogs
Given: - a huge European bank wants us to build an API they could use in their app; - millions of potential users; - fixed deadline; - no already existing solution; - two devs.
It is a story of good, bad and ugly, of lessons, excitements, drama and fun. I will talk about all aspects we had to consider: development, deployment and release, monitoring and alerting, security and cost. I will share the approach we used to tackle uncertainty and scale.
Spoiler: it's about AWS and serverless and importance of clear coummnication and well defined processes.
