Serverless Applications with AWS teaches you to build serverless applications using AWS Lambda and other cloud-based services. Featuring expert presenter Marcia Villalba and dozens of high-quality video lessons, you'll practice as you go and start using what you learn immediately.
Serverless Applications with AWS guides you through a fully working image resizing service built on the AWS Lambda platform. As you create the application, you'll develop an understanding of S3 and event-driven architecture, use DynamoDB for flexible metadata storage, and learn the principles of serverless application design. You'll even master REST APIs and authentication. In each crystal-clear module, you'll put your new knowledge into practice as you watch your application grow before your eyes.
There's a huge shift away from locally-managed infrastructure, thanks to cloud solutions like AWS. Serverless applications are the next big step, freeing you from the costly and time-consuming task of day-to-day server management. AWS Lambda, along with a host of other pre-built components and services, makes it easy (and cheap!) to build powerful cloud-based applications. AWS handles scaling, load balancing, and other demand-based issues. In the serverless model, you can create apps that are stable, powerful, and practically self-managing faster than you ever imagined.Prerequisites
