Developing Serverless Solutions on AWS (AWSDEVSS)


Course Overview

This course gives developers exposure to and practice with best practices for building serverless applications using AWS Lambda and other services in the AWS serverless platform. You’ll use AWS frameworks to deploy a serverless application in hands-on labs that progress from simpler to more complex topics. You will use AWS documentation throughout the course to develop authentic methods for learning and problem-solving beyond the classroom.

Who should attend

Developers who have some familiarity with serverless architecture and experience with development in the AWS Cloud.

Course Objectives

  • Apply event-driven best practices to a serverless application design using appropriate AWS services
  • Identify the challenges and trade-offs of transitioning to serverless development, and make recommendations that suit your development organization and environment
