  • Build a Serverless Data Pipeline Wed 25th Apr 15:00 - 15:30

    Build a Serverless Data Pipeline

    Bringing data in from external sources, handling updates to databases and notifications to external systems: this talk is a case study of building a simple stackoverflow dashboard application in a fun and practical way.

    Come to this session for an overview of how we built a serverless pipeline to pull in data and serve as the backend behind the stackoverflow dashboard I built for my team of Developer Evangelists.  With data coming in from an external API plus updates to the data after it has arrived, there were some design decisions to make.  I'll share those decisions and talk about the ones we've iterated on and might alter in the future.  This talk is suitable for developers of all technical stacks.
