What does it mean when someone calls you smart or intelligent? According to developmental psychologist Howard Gardner, it could mean one of eight things. In this video interview, Dr. Gardner addresses his eight classifications for intelligence: writing, mathematics, music, spatial, kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal.
The re:Invent 2016 conference was an exciting week to be working on serverless at AWS. We announced new features like support for C# and dead letter queues, and launched new application constructs with Lambda such as Lambda@Edge, AWS Greengrass, Amazon Lex, and AWS Step Functions. In addition we also added support for surfacing services built using API Gateway in the AWS marketplace, expanded the capabilities for custom authorizers, and launched a reference developer portal for managing APIs. Catch up on all the great re:Invent launches here.
In addition to the serverless mini-con with deep dive talks and best practices, we also had deep customer talks by folks from Thomson Reuters, Vevo, Expedia, and FINRA. If you weren’t able to attend the mini-con or missed a specific session, here is a quick link to the entire Serverless Mini Conference Playlist. Other interesting sessions from other tracks are listed below.

Alex Russell on AMP + Progressive Web Apps: Start fast, stay engaged.
AMP delivers outstanding page-load performance for users browsing content on the mobile web, which is hugely important on limited or flaky networks. AMP gets content in front of users fast.
Progressive Web Apps deliver reliable performance for re-visits to sites thanks to Service Workers and the App Shell architecture. This technique allows sites to deliver rich experiences without worrying about networks.
Until now, however, these approaches for accelerating the mobile web have appeared to be in conflict. What if it were possible to use them in conjunction to deliver fast initial loading and reliable second-visit performance, as well as advanced features like offline reading and richer UI treatment?
Come learn about how to make AMP-based PWAs and hear about how this architecture is working for real-world publishers today.

Procrastination hits everyone, although perhaps that wording is wrong. It’s an internal force rather than an external one that acts on you – and that’s great news because it means getting past the thumb-twiddling is just a matter of having an actionable plan.
