Three Devs & A Maybe Podcast: Running Symfony on AWS Lambda with Neal Brooks
The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast, hosted by Michael Budd, Fraser Hart, Lewis Cains and Edd Mann, has posted their latest episode: Running Symfony on AWS Lambda with Neal Brooks
In this weeks episode we are lucky to be joined by Neal Brooks, a fellow developer of Edd’s at MyBuilder. We start off by discussing how he got into programming, QBasic and video driver shenanigans. From here, we move on to introduce his SymfonyLive London talk ‘Running Symfony on AWS Lambda’. We highlight what drew him to Lambda, and the new tooling that is making it easier to run PHP and frameworks (such as Symfony) on it. This leads us to cover his demo application, and explore handling assets using S3, database migrations and AWS resources using CloudFormation. Finally, we debate using catch-all gateway endpoints vs. dedicated gateway endpoints and Lambda performance.
Other topics mentioned include using a CDN with Symfony, the dittto/serverless-s3-assets library and the Mince Pie Challenge.
