Werner Vogels’s Keynote

I have been waiting all week for some announcements for Serverless.
And I was not disappointed today!

Lambda Layers & custom runtime

You can now share libraries/dependencies between functions with Lambda Layers.
Or even use layers to load a custom runtime!

New integrations for AWS Step Functions

AWS added support for DynamoDB, Batch, ECS, SNS, SQS, Glue and SageMaker to Step Functions.
I haven’t used Step Functions yet, but with all those integrations there’s a lot more possibilities!


Tonight is the re:Play party!

During the Keynote, Werner announced the line up for the live music stage and club stage:

  • Zach Person
  • Thievery Corporation
  • Future Islands
  • Jen Lasher
  • Mija
  • Skrillex

The classic attractions are also returning:

  • Dodgeball
  • Ball Pit
  • Archery Tag
  • Broom Ball

And we can expect much more surprises!
