Getting Started With Serverless Computing - Introduction


In this group of lectures, we explore what serverless computing is and how "functions as a service" differs from traditional computing models.

Having an understanding of what Cloud Computing will help you gain the most from this lesson, so if you feel unclear on the fundamentals of cloud computing, I recommend completing our What is Cloud Computing Lesson first.

Following this lesson, you will have an understanding of what serverless computing is, how serverless computing differs from traditional computing and a high-level understanding of how code functions can be provisioned and used as a service.
