Description

This is part 2 of my conversation with Scott Smethurst and Diana Ionita about their work at LifeWorks. We discussed the platform limitations and usability issues that make serverless development difficult sometimes, including problems with CloudWatch Logs, X-Ray, etc. that pushes you towards using other third-party vendors.

In part 1, we talked about the story of LifeWorks, a wellbeing startup that were acquired for $400M, in part, thanks to the heroics of Scott and Diana. They implemented business critical features using serverless technologies, delivered them under severe time constraints and created significant business value which played a part in the acquisition.
