Serverless Golang

Serverless Gopher

Gopher by @flemay, inspired by @ashleymcnamara and Renee French artworks.

Serverless Badge Go example projects.

Go Meetup Presentation:


For AWS, we leverage eawsy's python based AWS Lambda Go Shim for superior performance compared to Node.js shims:



  • seamless integration with AWS Lambda event sources or API Gateway HTTP requests.
  • use docker and docker-compose for easy testing with localstack (example coming soon) and ensure consistent dependencies across golang, python and serverless
  • docker builder image immutably baked in with:
    • amazon linux base image for building AWS Lambda
    • go 1.9.2
    • vendor support via glide, trash and dep
    • python 2.7
    • node 6
    • serverless 1.25.0



  • have serverless, go, make and docker
  • have correct $GOPATH and your new project must reside in $GOPATH/src/path/your-app

See each individual example for detailed instructions:


Currently used by amaysim Australia to build strategic Microservices across 4 business verticals.
