A jump-start to Serverless Applications with AWS Development!

Paulo Cesar Dias Lima

See it. Do it. Learn it! Serverless Applications with AWS teaches you to build serverless applications using AWS Lambda and other cloud-based services. Featuring expert presenter Marcia Villalba, dozens of high-quality video lessons, built-in exercises, and the innovative liveVideo learning platform, you'll practice as you go and start using what you learn immediately.

Serverless Applications with AWS guides you through a fully working image resizing service built on the AWS Lambda platform. As you create the application, you'll develop an understanding of S3 and event-driven architecture, use DynamoDB for flexible metadata storage, and learn the principles of serverless application design. You'll even master REST APIs and authentication. In each crystal-clear module, you'll put your new knowledge into practice as you watch your application grow before your eyes.

About the subject

There's a huge shift away from locally-managed infrastructure, thanks to cloud solutions like AWS. Serverless applications are the next big step, freeing you from the costly and time-consuming task of day-to-day server management. AWS Lambda, along with a host of other pre-built components and services, makes it easy (and cheap!) to build powerful cloud-based applications. AWS handles scaling, load balancing, and other demand-based issues. In the serverless model, you can create apps that are stable, powerful, and practically self-managing faster than you ever imagined.
