This learning path includes everything you need to know to get started developing serverless applications using AWS services. 

We start with an introduction to AWS CLI, Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and using serverless functions. We then get into more advanced API Gateway functionality, as well as databases and containers. Throughout, we provide a lot of labs to give you the hands-on experience you need to develop serverless applications on AWS.

Labs are the best way to understand the benefits of Lambda.  The best way to learn how to use it is to get your hands dirty trying it out for yourself! The labs extend your knowledge and understanding and show you how to get the most benefit from Lambda functions in processing day to day tasks
