With AWS Step Functions you can build workflows to coordinate applications from single AWS Lambda functions up through complex multi-step workflows. Step Functions can help developers greatly reduce the code they need to maintain by providing a standardized way to handle failures, retries, parallelization, and basic decision tree logic. As of AWS re:Invent 2018 you can also create workflows without any custom code, leveraging new capabilities of Step Functions to interface directly with AWS services such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SNS, and AWS Glue. In this session we’ll walk through the capabilities of Step Functions and how it can help simplify and improve your application development.
