about the book
Exploring Serverless Applications with Node.js
includes the first three chapters of Serverless Applications with Node.js
by serverless experts Slobodan Stojanović and Aleksandar Simović. This quick-start mini ebook begins with an introduction to the core concepts of serverless architecture, exploring the features that Claudia.js offers for creating serverless applications. In the second chapter, you’ll apply those concepts and features to building a serverless pizzeria app while taking a closer look at Claudia.js in action. Next, since Node.js executes asynchronously, you’ll explore how serverless affects asynchronization. Finally, you’ll discover for yourself the ease of connecting AWS Lambda to an external service as you add functionality to your app for storing your pizza orders with AWS DynamoDB. Filled with examples and exercises, this introductory guide is the perfect place to start learning highly-sought-after serverless skills.
