Architecture & Process Review

Who’s this for?

You have an existing serverless application running on AWS. You have concerns about the functionality, scalability or maintainability of your architecture or development processes as your product grows. Perhaps you’re encountering performance issues, or you’re not sure how to best use specific AWS services or manage your AWS environments. Or perhaps you want to move an existing server-based application to a serverless architecture. Whatever the particular issues you wish to address, I can help you overcome them in this engagement.

What’s included?

  • Questionnaire: A detailed assessment of your current architecture and development processes
  • Diagnostic Workshop (2–3hrs video call): Information gathering session with your developers to go deeper on the specific issues you wish to target
  • Written Application Review Report tailored to the specific issues you wish to address. The report includes:
    • Risks and their causes I identified in your current architecture and development processes
    • Detailed recommendations of solutions to address these risks
  • Q & A Session (1hr video call): Post-report follow-up call discussing the report and answering your questions

In addition to these, I can provide ongoing help during the implementation of the recommendations based on the level of support you require.

Price: from £5,000 GBP (≈$6,100 USD).

What clients are saying

Paul’s focus on developer experience was probably the thing I most liked about his work with us. We frequently needed to onboard new team members and handoff projects to internal teams and this was key to long term success of projects. He raised the bar for our team, in many ways we’ve surpassed our previous stack in terms of IaC, CI/CD and testing.

Paul knows his stuff and instantly had respect of all team members and leadership. Very diplomatic, change is not easy for all. Our team literally went from nothing on AWS and Serverless to feeling like there is not much we can’t do.

The main takeaway from our engagement was confidence.

The value of having an expert who is enjoyable to work with and capable of providing real-world guidance and advice is immense. Paul’s ability to review our solution and process and instill confidence in our work (or help address any risks) is highly valuable.

Paul helped us transition our existing AppSync app away from Amplify CLI and manually created cloud resources to using the Serverless Framework. After a bit of hard work and help, we are comfortable with both decisions and feel they will be critical to our success.

Paul has a deep understanding of industry best practices that goes beyond knowing the right thing to do. He pragmatically adapts to your immediate needs. He quickly understood the project and our business goals and he let us know when complexity was unwarranted and work was premature.
