Serverless Stack is an open source guide to building and deploying full-stack serverless applications using Serverless and React. It’s completely free and the content and comments are hosted on GitHub. While working with these technologies we found that very few of the resources out there focussed on full-stack and even if they did they ended up being out of date and possibly inaccurate. By making this guide open source we hope to keep it up to date and accurate with the help of our readers. We also rely on our community to help people resolve their issues while they work through the tutorial.
Serverless Stack is written and maintained by Frank Wang (@fanjiewang) & Jay V (@jayair) from Anomaly Innovations. Frank does most of the backend, while Jay builds the frontend. We have been developing on the AWS Platform for nearly a decade. We have built web apps, iPhone and Android apps, in a variety of different environments and languages. We have experience in building everything from web apps that algorithmically process tens of millions of messages in real-time, to mobile apps that reached the top 100 in the App Store.
Frank and Jay speaking at the AWS Users Group on the Serverless Stack
Over the years we’ve accumulated a ton of experience on how to build, deploy, and maintain applications on the AWS Platform. The serverless approach has been a giant revelation to us. If we had a chance to go back and do this all over again, there is no doubt we would have taken the serverless approach. The pros simply outweigh the cons. And while we recognize that it is not for everybody; we wanted to create a resource that makes it easy to learn and get started.
