In this series of liveProjects, you’ll migrate business-critical features of a travel application from a legacy monolith to a new microservices-based architecture that uses ​AWS Lambda and AWS Step Functions​. You’ll step into the shoes of a software engineer working for SimpleTravel, a company that offers a one-stop solution for vacation breaks. You’ve been tasked with handling the migration of the core functionalities of the SimpleTravel app delivering a solution that will improve the application’s robustness and scalability. But beware, you don’t have so much time. Luckily, AWS fully managed services are an excellent resource to help make this migration pain free. Each liveProject in this series covers a different migration task, letting you pick and choose the skills you need to master.

These projects are designed for learning purposes and are not complete, production-ready applications or solutions.

here's what's included

Project 1 AWS Lambda Functions
In this liveProject, you’ll build a new recommendation service for a travel application that’s migrating to microservices. Taking on the role of a software engineer for SimpleTravel, you’ll use AWS Lambda functions to quickly implement production-ready microservices. You’ll start by implementing Lambda functions using the AWS Console, and then script them with AWS Command Line Interface.

Project 2 AWS Step Functions
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.
