Workshop: Building Serverless Applications

Event Details

In this workshop are going to use a number of AWS Services and the serverless framework to build event driven microservices with Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, S3, and Kinesis. You’ll learn how to deploy your applications as independent functions, that respond to events, charge you only when they run, and scale automatically. The open source Serverless Framework helps to facilitate this and simplifies the deployment to Lambda — all from the comfort of your command line.

Technologies used for this workshop:

  • AWS Lambda
  • AWS Kinesis
  • AWS API Gateway
  • AWS DynamoDB
  • The Serverless Framework

Key takeaways

  • Building Serverless infrastructure as code via the Serverless Framework
  • How to deploy into different environments (dev/qa/prod etc)
  • How to manage env variables & secrets in the serverless world
  • Basic fundamentals of DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, API Gateway, S3, and Kinesis
  • Best practices on how to deploy & manage serverless applications (CI & CD flow)
