Hands-On Serverless Applications with Go: Build real-world, production-ready applications with AWS Lambda
Learn to build, secure, deploy, and manage your serverless application in Golang with AWS Lambda
- Implement AWS lambda to build scalable and cost-efficient applications in Go
- Design and set the data flow between cloud services and custom business logic
- Learn to design Lambda functions using real-world examples and implementation scenarios
Serverless architecture is popular in the tech community due to AWS Lambda. Go is simple to learn, straightforward to work with, and easy to read for other developers; and now it's been heralded as a supported language for AWS Lambda. This book is your optimal guide to designing a Go serverless application and deploying it to Lambda.
This book starts with a quick introduction to the world of serverless architecture and its benefits, and then delves into AWS Lambda using practical examples. You'll then learn how to design and build a production-ready application in Go using AWS serverless services with zero upfront infrastructure investment. The book will help you learn how to scale up serverless applications and handle distributed serverless systems in production. You will also learn how to log and test your application.
Along the way, you'll also discover how to set up a CI/CD pipeline to automate the deployment process of your Lambda functions. Moreover, you'll learn how to troubleshoot and monitor your apps in near real-time with services such as AWS CloudWatch and X-ray. This book will also teach you how to secure the access with AWS Cognito.
By the end of this book, you will have mastered designing, building, and deploying a Go serverless application.
