Introduction to what is this service and what it is useful for
AWS Step Functions is a web service that enables you to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows.
Step Functions manage the operations and underlying infrastructure for you to ensure your application is available at any scale.
In this Lab, we will see what AWS Step Functions are and what types of problems this service is the best suited to solve. At the end of this Lab, we will have created a solution that combines Lambda and Step Functions for a fictitious gaming application.
This is an intermediate level Lab, in fact, different services are necessary to complete it. For this reason, we recommend you to take a look at both Introduction to AWS Lambda and Introduction To DynamoDB Labs.
