In this course, we explore some of the common use cases for serverless functions and get started with implementing serverless functions in a simple application



So, to conclude our Using Serverless Functions course, let's just review the things we've been over. So, we created an AWS Lambda function to monitor and process an Amazon S3 bucket, we used two Lambda functions in an application, one to notify of an upload to Amazon S3, and another function to send a notification to Simple Notification Service of a completed order in our restaurant ordering application. And, we discussed the roles and options for integrating Lambda with other AWS services and other services in general, both in and outside of our VPC. We worked through using Amazon Cloudwatch to monitor Lambda functions and we looked at how to start using the console.log file to debug applications. Now, I suggest completing the labs that follow this course so you have an opportunity to try some of these concepts hands on, always the best way to learn.
