Jason Overby


My name is Jason Overby.

I'm a full-stack software engineer based in Portland, OR and co-creator of the BAM! serverless framework.


BAM! is a lightweight, serverless framework used to quickly build and deploy applications with Node.js and AWS.

BAM! abstracts away the complexities of working with AWS and enables a developer to deploy an AWS Lambda function connected to an Amazon API Gateway with one command, no configuration, and at least 55% faster than similar frameworks.

Watch me present BAM! at the PDX Node meetup.
