Deploy your Flask or Django app to AWS Lambda with Zappa on Nov. 19, 2017 at 2:25 p.m. in Théâtre Marie Gérin-Lajoie (MGL)

Zappa makes it easy to deploy your Flask or Django (or really, any WSGI app) to Amazon AWS Lambda, by hooking into AWS API Gateway.

In this talk, you'll get a brief introduction to how to use Zappa with your existing or upcoming projects, from how to install it to how to use it. If there's a stable connection, we'll even deploy a simple app during the talk, in only a few seconds.

Lambda is an inexpensive and very highly concurrent way to run "serverless" applications. I'm currently using this technology to deploy an application that has a concurrency of 10,000, for one of the largest companies in the world.
