Building Serverless Applications on AWS

San Francisco, CA


  • How to leverage serverless functions (FAAS) in your web applications
  • Building serverless infrastructure as code via the Serverless Framework
  • How to deploy production ready apps into multiple environments (dev/qa/prod etc)
  • How to manage env variables & secrets in a serverless world
  • Basic fundamentals of DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, API Gateway, S3, & Kinesis
  • Best practices on how to deploy & manage serverless applications (CI & CD flow)


"Serverless" is more than today's trendy buzzword, it's a new way for (frontend AND backend) developers to build massively scalable systems without a massive budget. Attributes like auto-scaling out of the box, pay-per execution pricing, and rapid multi-stage deployments allow developers to focus on shipping value, not managing the underlying infrastructure. In this workshop, we will show how to apply a serverless approach to develop applications hosted on AWS (Amazon Web Services). You'll learn how to build serverless APIs and applications using a serverless architecture, and we'll get hands on as we walk through some practical ways to use Lambda and other managed AWS services to build out low maintenance, cost-efficient scalable applications. We will use serverless technologies like AWS Lambda, S3, DynamoDB, API Gateway and CloudFormation and explore how to use and benefit from these new capabilities.
