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. 


Hi, and welcome to course three in the Getting Started with Serverless Computing learning path. In this course, we're going to create a serverless function using the AWS Lambda service. We're going to connect that Lambda function up with our restful API Gateway, and we're going to return a result from the AWS Lambda function when it's requested by a client using the API Gateway service.
