What you'll learn

  • Understand the benefits, trade-offs, concepts, and patterns of serverless architecture
  • Learn how to build a serverless application using AWS technology


Serverless is the latest trend in application and system architecture, but it’s not obvious or intuitive how to architect, build, or operate serverless applications.

Mike Roberts discusses the benefits, trade-offs, concepts, and patterns of serverless architecture and then demonstrates building a serverless application using AWS technology with API Gateway and Lambda. Along the way, Mike explores production-ready examples of serverless cloud ops using additional AWS products such as CodeBuild, CodePipeline, the Serverless Application Model (SAM), and CloudWatch. You’ll leave with a blueprint for a fully deployable and functional serverless application, ready for you to enhance and extend.
