Cloud-native is lean. Companies today must continuously experiment with new product ideas so that they can adapt to changing market demands; otherwise, they risk falling behind their competition. To operate at this pace, they must leverage fully managed cloud services and fully-automated deployments to minimize time to market, mitigate operating risks, and empower self-sufficient, full-stack teams to accomplish far more with much less effort.
The recipes in this cookbook demonstrate how to use fully managed, serverless cloud services to develop and deploy lean and autonomous services. This chapter contains bare-boned recipes with no clutter in order to focus on the core aspects of deploying cloud-native components and to establish a solid foundation for the remainder of this cookbook.
