In the previous episode, the gang at Tourbuzz had “creatively leveraged the power of the cloud” at Heroku to process uploads quickly at a reasonable cost. In Collect Underpants, the Sequel, Alan Pinstein shows how Heroku performed at cloud scale in the real world and introduces our new superhero, Lambda the AWS, to see if he can save the day. In this September 1st, 2016 presentation, Alan Pinstein talks about abusing the cloud for fun and profit.
