High Performance Serverless with Rust

Rust and AWS Lambda seem like the perfect fit. Micro-sized virtual machines and a highly-performant systems language that has a proven track record of delivering a quality developer experience. So why hasn't more adoption occurred?

In this talk I will bring together these two ecosystems to show that you can have highly available and scalable compute with Lambda while maximizing performance and resource consumption with Rust and the AWS Lambda Runtime. Come learn how to take advantage of Rust with the AWS Serverless Application Model and explore a multiple binary and shared library Cargo Workspace.

By the end of this talk, you'll walk away with practical options for building your next Lambda Function in Rust that will turbocharge your feature delivery and user's experience.

Rust Patterns I Have Known and Loved

When adopting Rust, there are many unfamiliar patterns and often what feels like a steep learning curve for those who aren't familiar with the language. For lower-level code, there are some times where trying to do something simple feels outright impossible.


Myth Busters: Is Rust a Slam Dunk?

We built a high-scale caching service with rigorous latency, cost, and availability requirements in Kotlin. Then, we rewrote our services in Rust. Was it worth it?
