This course is designed to get you familiarised with the basics of AWS Lambda and the Serverless framework quickly, and then deep dive into the operational challenges with running a serverless architecture in production and the emerging patterns and practices to tackle them.

This is a hands-on course where we will build a simple e-commerce site from scratch, using a number of services in the AWS ecosystem including (but not limited to) Lambda, API Gateway, Kinesis and Cognito User Pools. Expect to learn the basics of AWS Lambda and the Serverless framework in the first hour or so, which would allow us to move on to:

  • Creating APIs with API Gateway and Lambda
  • Real-time stream processing with Kinesis and Lambda
  • Authentication and authorization
  • Testing strategies
  • Local debugging
  • Continuous Integration, Deployment and Delivery
  • Project organization
  • Managing shared code and shared infrastructure
  • Log aggregation and monitoring
  • Distributed tracing using X-Ray
  • Performance and cost optimization
  • Error handling
  • Config management
  • Working with VPCs
  • Canary deployments

Bring your own laptop, open an AWS account, and install VisualStudio Code and the Serverless framework and let's get you ready for running a serverless architecture in production!
