In this course, we will create a multi-tier Serverless architecture on AWS using Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions and Amazon Polly text to speech. 
This is a hands-on course where you will learn how to create serverless functions, data access, business logic and integration layers on AWS. Also, you will learn to create a presentation layer for your application using the client SDK generated by Amazon API Gateway.

We will then host the application on Amazon S3. At the conclusion of the course, you will be able to recognize and implement an end to end workflow built in the Amazon Cloud using Serverless components.

This course is intended for developers or DevOps engineers who want to create Serverless applications on AWS, or who may be considering migrating their existing web applications to AWS.

Pre-requisites for this course are having a basic familiarity with Amazon API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDb, S3 and AWS Step functions is required and some knowledge of building web applications using HTML and JavaScript will also be helpful.
