Serverless is the latest trend in application and system architecture, but it’s not obvious or intuitive how to design, build, or operate serverless applications. Mike Roberts discusses the benefits, trade-offs, and concepts of Serverless Architecture, and then takes you on a journey of building a Serverless application using Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies like API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, and SNS.
Beyond just development you’ll be learning how to deploy and run these technologies in a ‘Continuous Deployment Driven’ fashion. After a brief introduction to fundamentals we’ll bootstrap our work in a full Serverless CD environment using CodePipeline, CloudFormation and more.
