Learn AWS Serverless Computing
Serverless computing is a way to run your code without having to provision or manage servers. Amazon Web Services provides serverless services that you can use to build and deploy cloud-native applications. Starting with the basics of AWS Lambda, this book takes you through combining Lambda with other services from AWS, such as Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Step Functions.
You’ll learn how to write, run, and test Lambda functions using examples in Node.js, Java, Python, and C# before you move on to developing and deploying serverless APIs efficiently using the Serverless Framework. In the concluding chapters, you’ll discover tips and best practices for leveraging Serverless Framework to increase your development productivity.
By the end of this book, you’ll have become well-versed in building, securing, and running serverless applications using Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda without having to manage any servers.
Scott Patterson is a cloud architecture lead, a product owner, and a proud technology geek. With a healthy obsession of all things AWS, Scott gets most excited about the things you can build with serverless patterns and modern cloud-native architectures. He has empowered many organizations to rethink, rearchitect, and accelerate the release of their products by using these very patterns.
Scott is also a huge advocate for AWS within the developer community, being a co-founder of the AWS User Group in Wellington he runs events and conferences throughout New Zealand.
Outside of work, Scott lives a high-adrenaline life where he enjoys paragliding from mountains, building cars, and racing motorcycles.
