Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll use AWS Step Functions to preserve service coordination between newly split microservices functions. This cooperation between services is vital for large-scale microservices architectures. Luckily, the built-in Step Functions feature of AWS can supervise your microservices orchestration and ensure their continued reliability and scalability.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
