Beginner-level Java experience and AWS experience (useful but not required)

Serverless is the latest trend in application and system architecture, but it’s not obvious or
intuitive how to design, build, or operate serverless applications. Mike Roberts discusses the benefits, trade-offs, and concepts of Serverless Architecture and takes you on a journey of building, deploying, and running a Serverless application using Amazon Web Services (AWS) technology such as API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, and SNS. You’ll leave with a functioning Serverless application written in Java running in your own AWS account, ready for you to enhance and extend, as well as the skills and knowledge to build your own Serverless AWS applications.
Since Serverless is so new it is not always obvious what it is, how it fits with existing
architectural patterns, and where its strengths and weaknesses lie. Mike describes Serverless from first principles up through the most recent advances, preparing you for how this world will expand in the future.
The core of AWS’ Serverless offering is AWS Lambda, and you’ll be diving particularly deep into coding in this model. Mike takes you from the foundations of Lambda development through to often unexplored intricacies including optimization, error handling and not-always-obvious limitations. We’ll be using Java as our vehicle for this journey, but most of the lessons learned will be applicable across other languages, and Mike will call out language-specific details as we hit them.
Lambda doesn’t sit in a vacuum – AWS provides a wealth of other Serverless services that
Lambda can integrate with, including HTTP gateways, message busses, databases, and more. A good understanding of all of these technologies can significantly increase your effectiveness and so we’ll venture into these worlds too.
Finally there’s no point using such a collection of technologies without tooling to make a full development lifecycle. Mike shows you how you can combine AWS tooling with a few savvy techniques that will allow you to create, develop and manage a Serverless application quickly and effectively.
