Description

In this course, we will delve into implementing a series of AWS Lambda functions to help build our knowledge and familiarity with serverless computing.

Learning Objectives
Following this course, we will be able to explain and implement an AWS Lambda code function that meets 3 common AWS Lambda use cases - API Gateway, S3, and DynamoDB. In this course, we will create a simple AWS Lambda function from scratch which will read data using the mock interface provided by AWS Lambda. Once we have the function working, we will connect the Lambda function up to the API Gateway we created in the previous course. During the launch, we discuss launch parameters, versioning, and aliases. 

Transcript

Okay, that concludes our Creating Our First Serverless Function course, so, let's review what we've been through. We introduced Serverless functions and what the AWS Lambda service can provide. We created a simple Lambda function from scratch to read information from a mock data array, and then we connected our Lambda function up to an API Gateway and read two types of data from that API. I do recommend you do the labs that follow this course, and any questions or feedback, please reach out to us at suuport@cloudacademy.com.
