Whether you’re building a chat app or the next Pokémon GO, there are plenty of reasons to go serverless: Firstly, it has decreased time to market, it enhances scalability. Mainly, lower cost and more time for user experience, improved latency and geolocation and much more!
Are you looking forward to developing production-ready, serverless and secure applications with AWS? Then, this Learning Path is perfect for you!
Here’s how you can benefit and experience the above reasons to go Serverless with AWS:
Amazon Web Services continues its domination as the leading cloud service provider on the market. Since serverless applications are gaining a lot of traction, it is extremely important to understand the serverless architecture, to help you build, manage, and secure serverless applications. They help you manage the complexity of today’s applications and tackle the demands of today’s users in a way, unlike any other previous serverless framework.
This comprehensive 3-in-1 course will help you understand serverless architectures and their implementation on AWS. Learn to build, deploy, manage, and secure serverless applications. You’ll get an exposure to practical examples and use cases to work with serverless architecture. Solve the most common serverless framework problems that is faced. Enter into the Serverless world of AWS Lambda and master its core components and how it works. You’ll efficiently design, develop, and test Lambda functions using Node.js.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Design Serverless Architecture with AWS and AWS Lambda, covers the core concepts of serverless architecture with AWS Lambda. This course starts with introduction to serverless architectures and then you’ll delve into design considerations, followed by building a serverless application and deploying it on your serverless architecture. Go through various practical example of deploying and orchestrating a serverless application using DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, and API Gateway. You’ll learn about some security considerations in protecting your serverless application. Finally, you’ll have mastered working with serverless architectures on AWS Cloud.
The second course, Building Serverless Applications, covers serverless application development in a step-by-step manner, and helps you build your first unique, advanced application. In this course, you’ll build a Slack bot to manage tasks. Moving ahead, you’ll learn to deploy your application to the cloud and study the tools used in creating applications.
The third course, Deep Dive into AWS Lambda, covers the Serverless ecosystem with AWS services including DynamoDB. This video course starts with an introduction to the world of Serverless computing and its advantages and use cases, followed by a deep dive into AWS Lambda. You’ll learn cover how to build and deploy an AWS Lambda function and also learn to integrate AWS Lambda with Simple Storage Service. Along the way, you’ll also discover how to design and deploy considerations for AWS Lambda.
By the end of this training program you’ll have mastered serverless application development and serverless architecture with AWS Lambda to build your first unique, advanced and production-ready application.
