This lesson explores Amazon EventBridge and how it can be used to construct architectures in the cloud using event-driven microservices. In this lesson, you will learn how to use EventBridge rules and targets to react to events. We'll then take a deeper dive into the service and learn how it differs from Amazon Kinesis and the Simple Notification Service.

Learning Objectives

  • Create Eventbridge rules and targets that can react to events created by multiple AWS sources as well as SaaS providers
  • Understand how EventBridge could become a new way to architect your solutions with event-driven patterns in mind

Intended Audience

  • Anyone wanting to move from a monolithic cloud architecture to one composed of microservices that work based on event-driven systems
  • Anyone who wants to learn more about EventBridge


To get the most out of this lesson, you should have a good understanding of architectures, cloud computing, basic monitoring, and some understanding of JSON. Knowledge of Amazon CloudWatch would also be beneficial.
