About the Book
A serverless architecture approach replaces long-running virtual machines with ephemeral compute power that comes into existence on request and disappears immediately after use. With scalability and high availability baked in as well as a pay-what-you-use pricing model, serverless is taking software by storm!
- An event-driven image processing pipeline
- A scalable web scraper
- A serverless microservice
Each hands-on project is a real-life implementation of a serverless design pattern. Over the course of the projects you'll learn how to create, develop, test, deploy, and monitor Serverless applications from planning to production. You'll also learn how to use a suite of AWS technologies beyond just Lambda such as API Gateway, DynamoDB, SNS, S3, and more.
We will also look at some advanced topics such as:
- How to secure your serverless APIs with JSON Web Tokens and AWS Custom Authorizers
- How to orchestrate complex pipelines with AWS Step Functions
Working code samples will be available for all hands-on projects and advanced topics.
