In this session I will talk through building a URL shortening application that abandons functional code entirely and handles all business logic and security at the gateway. Using less than 400 lines of YAML, we will integrate authorization and a simple database to achieve a massively scalable application, while reducing latency and compute costs. I will also show you how you can use this pattern globally, regionally, or even privately to provide data access with minimal architecture.

What will the audience learn from this talk?
The audience will have a basic understanding of utilizing the powers of an API gateway before ever having to utilize backend compute.

Does it feature code examples and/or live coding?
This demo does feature live coding.
