See it. Do it. Learn it! AWS Lambda in Motion introduces you to leading patterns and practices for creating operationally sound serverless applications using AWS Lambda, API Gateway, and Kinesis. You'll enjoy the professionally-produced video instruction from AWS expert Yan Cui, along with live exercises, text-based navigation, and the other innovative features built into Manning's liveVideo platform.
AWS Lambda in Motion teaches you how to build applications that take advantage of AWS Lambda and other AWS platform features like API Gateway and Kinesis. AWS expert Yan Cui guides you from writing your first AWS Lambda functions through handling the operational challenges Lambda can bring as you integrate serverless development practices into your applications. You'll build a basic e-commerce site piece by piece, including a Lambda-based web API using the API Gateway service. This hands-on course introduces processing events in real-time using Lambda and Kinesis Streams, implementing security against common OWASP attacks, modern serverless design patterns, and best practices for maximizing performance and minimizing cost!
AWS Lambda is a platform for running cloud-hosted functions—small, single-responsibility services that handle tasks and orchestrate data flow among other AWS services. Lambda functions responds to the events triggered by users and your application. AWS automatically scales Lambda for you based on demand, so you can minimize infrastructure plumbing management and enjoy the reliability, security, and responsiveness you need to create amazing applications!
Yan Cui has worked with AWS since 2010 and has architected and implemented many scalable backend systems running on AWS, including a successful mobile game with 1,000,000 daily active users. He has worked with AWS Lambda in production extensively in the last 18 months, including migrating a social network from a monolithic backend architecture running on EC2 to an event-driven, service-oriented architecture centered around AWS Lambda.
