Video description

Build four real-world JavaScript projects using AWS Lambda Function as a Service (FaaS) for serverless web development

About This Video

  • Practical training in working with AWS Lambda to build serverless JS applications
  • Build four different applications with different Lambda functions, hands-on
  • Gain in-depth knowledge of working with AWS Lambda by exploring important aspects of serverless computing

In Detail

If you need full-scale JavaScript apps but you don't want a server or don't can't afford one, then this course is for you. You will master serverless computing with AWS Lambda by building four real-world projects throughout this course.

You will learn how AWS Lambda is used to get your job done via functions that only run when they need to, without servers. This course will walk you through getting into AWS Lambda and using it.

By the end of this course, you will have the skills you need to use AWS Lambda to build serverless JavaScript applications that are both efficient and powerful.
