    #70: Serverless at LEGO with Sarah Hamilton

    In this episode, I caught up with Sarah Hamilton, who is an AWS Community Builder and a software engineer at LEGO.

    We talked about her journey into serverless and LEGO's serverless adoption has changed since I spoke with Sheen and Nicole on this podcast. In the two years since they have grown from 6 features teams to over 25, all focused on serverless technologies. We also talked about some of Sarah's previous work, especially a project where she used Step Functions, and her approach towards testing Step Functions.

    In this episode, I spoke with Nick Tune and Kacper Gunia to talk about Team Topologies, i.e. how to structure businesses and teams so that you can get stuff done faster.
