Book Description

Serverless is a cloud computing execution model where the cloud provider dynamically manages the allocation and provisioning of servers. Many companies have started using serverless architectures to cut costs and improve scalability. Hands-On Serverless Applications with Kotlin is your one-stop guide to designing serverless architectures for your applications with AWS and Kotlin.

To start with, you'll explore the fundamentals of serverless architecture and how AWS Lambda functions work. You will then learn to design, build, secure, and deploy your application to production. In addition to these activities, you'll understand how to implement non-functional requirements such as auditing and logging. Moving on, you'll discover how to scale up and orchestrate serverless applications using an open source framework and handle distributed serverless systems in production.

By the end of the book, you'll have gained the knowledge needed to build scalable and cost-efficient Kotlin applications with a serverless framework.
