Talk: The Case for Monorepo & Serverless

Monorepos and Serverless go hand in hand, but why? This talk tells how to share business logic, have full environments for each feature branch and what it takes to build a monorepo. Built on AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild with AWS Step Functions orchestrating the whole show. This talk goes through the motivation and principles why monorepo is a good choice for a Serverless project and what it took for Midaxo to get our monorepo working. We will go through how Midaxo organized the code inside the monorepo, how to run CI/CD on top of AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild and how we use AWS Step Functions to provision full development environments for every feature branch.
