Practical Serverless development for Beginners


Practical Serverless development for Beginners

Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. With serverless computing, your application still runs on servers, but all the server management is done by cloud providers (in this case AWS). Serverless lets you focus on your application code instead of worrying about provisioning, configuring, and managing servers.

You will being with a 10,000 feet overview of cloud computing and serverless and then get your hands dirty with real serverless development. You are going to build an imaginary inventory management services “Inventoria”.

Once you have understood cloud computing and serverless, you are going to build and assemble all the pieces together to create real endpoints.

You are going to understand serverless database DynamoDB and how it works. You are then going to design and create the table.

Once you have designed your database, it’s time to create microservices and you are learn AWS Lambda to create inventory servcies using Node.JS 8.10.

It’s time to create endpoints, so inventory services are consumed by any front-end or consumer applications. You are going to explore AWS API gateway to create endpoints for your inventory services.

Once all the endpoints have been created, it’s time to test them, so whatever you have created works.

Action time with my bonus lecture to integrate all your endpoints with an Angular 7 app (it can be any front-end application, you might choose to integrate with). You will also examine serverless frameworks for example serverless and AWS SAM (Serverless Application Model), so you are ready for serverless development locally.

At the end of this course, you are fully aware about serverless and serverless development using AWS. You can expand this further with Azure and Google Cloud.
