Serverless Apps with AWS Lambda

schedule Sep 14th 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM place Cliftons people 1 Interested shopping_cart Reserve Seat

This is a practical workshop for developers and architects that want to take advantage of the latest trends in cloud computing: serverless apps and cloud functions. Through hands-on exercises and teamwork, you’ll learn about using AWS Lambda and API Gateway to create responsive event-driven micro-services, auto-scaling web APIs, and high-performance web sites. By the end of the workshop, you will create a useful real-world serverless application, exploring the typical architectural patterns.

Serverless platforms significantly reduce the cost of running high-performance web sites and API services in the cloud, but with a major impact on architecture, these services also require teams to re-think how to approach sessions, storage, authorization and testing.

The author of the workshop is Gojko Adzic, a key contributor to Claudia.js, a popular open-source deployment tool for AWS Lambda.

Learning Outcome

  • Use AWS Lambda and API Gateway
  • Perform file conversion, image serving, connecting to third-party APIs and managing sessions with serverless architectures
  • Design scalable, high-performance web sites with single-page apps backed by cloud APIs
  • Get the most out of AWS integrations (AWS Cognito and AWS IoT Gateway)
  • Identify how serverless architecture impacts testing, monitoring and deployments
  • Run A/B tests easily and operate multiple versions of your system cheaply by learning best practice
  • Start converting monolithic applications to cloud functions
  • Use Amazon Serverless Application Model (SAM) and Claudia.js to deploy Lambda functions

Target Audience

Anyone interested in using using AWS Lambda and API Gateway to create responsive event-driven micro-services, auto-scaling web APIs, and high-performance web sites.

Prerequisites for Attendees

  • Working knowledge of JavaScript. The tools and techniques you’ll learn about will apply for any programming language, but the coding examples will be in JavaScript/Node.js to keep things simple and make it easy for everyone to follow regardless of their primary platform. You don’t need expert level knowledge of JavaScript, but you should be comfortable writing simple functions and flows. You don’t need prior experience with AWS services, but this would definitely be useful.
  • An Amazon Web Services account (free tier accounts are also OK, you can register at https://aws.amazon.com)
