The “Twelve-Factor” application model has come to represent twelve best practices for building modern, cloud-native applications. With guidance on things like configuration, deployment, runtime, and multiple service communication, the Twelve-Factor model prescribes best practices that apply to everything from web applications to APIs to data processing applications. Although Serverless computing and AWS Lambda have changed how application development is done, the “Twelve-Factor” best practices remain relevant and applicable in a Serverless world. In this talk, we’ll apply the “Twelve-Factor” model to Serverless application development with AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway and show you how these services enable you to build scalable, low cost, and low administration applications.
