Luke Hedger ~ Software Engineer

Hello! I'm Luke, a software engineer currently specialising in serverless applications and event-driven architectures. I'm the co-author of The Serverless Book, and I've spoken at various conferences and meetups.

Previously I have worked at Cancer Research UK, JAAK Music, Unlease, M&C Saatchi and Lean Mean Fighting Machine. Since 2019 I have been leading serverless engineering teams and using AWS Step Functions a lot.
