AWS re:Invent is on at the moment with some interesting announcements. One new feature in particular is the Lambda Runtime API for AWS Lamda. This is how they’ll be supporting new languages on AWS going forward (they just added ruby support through this API).
Looking forward to trying this out. I wonder how well the BEAM would work given it has relatively slow startup time. Still though, no need for a server, spawn up a process, do some work and you’re done, could be interesting.
