Featured image: How I built a serverless blog search with Java, Quarkus, and AWS Lambda

DevNation Tech Talks are hosted by the Red Hat technologists who create our products. These sessions include real solutions plus code and sample projects to help you get started. In this talk, you’ll learn about serverless blog search with Java, Quarkus, and AWS Lambda from Gunnar Morling and Burr Sutter.

A serverless application? With Java? Absolutely!

Join us for this session where we’ll discuss when serverless is a great fit (and when it isn’t) and why you don’t need to leave the Java platform when going serverless. Based on the real-world example of a serverless blog search, you’ll learn how Quarkus and GraalVM help you build applications for AWS Lambda that are blazing fast to start up and are memory-efficient at the same time.

In a live demo, we’ll explore:

  • Which options Quarkus provides for creating AWS Lambda applications, making noticeable cold-start delays a thing of the past.
  • What it takes to enable existing libraries like Apache Lucene to be used in GraalVM-native binaries.
  • How to build serverless applications that are portable across platforms, avoiding lock-in to specific providers.

Bring your questions, too, and let’s exchange what we know about how Quarkus can help you to build serverless applications.
