Real-world experiencePractice in a live, pre-configured sandbox environment.


The Serverless Framework is a very powerful tool to design, build and deploy serverless applications across multiple cloud providers. It gives you the possibility to easily specify the functions you want to deploy, along with the triggers for them. Then, it offers you the possibility to deploy other cloud resources that could work strictly with the microservice you are creating.

The playground is a safe and secure sandbox environment for you to explore your own ideas, follow along with Cloud Academy courses, or answer your own questions all without the need to install any software on your local machine. The extended duration of this playground provides you with ample time to play to your heart's content. The goal is to be able to experiment and learn with little start time or overhead. Feel free to experiment with creating serverless microservice with the Serverless Framework. You will have access to the Serverless Framework IDE where you can perform all the operations from. By leveraging the Serverless Framework, you can also deploy the following resources: DynamoDB tables, SQS Queues, and SNS Topics.
