AWS Lambda takes the already revolutionary Amazon Web Services to the next level by empowering you to run full-stack applications without the need to provision or manage servers. The Serverless Framework is an open source technology that facilitates building serverless architectures on Lambda & more.
About the Workshop
We all know how AWS revolutionized the way we build and deploy software applications. It reduced the barrier to entry by eliminating the need to purchase or maintain physical servers. But Lambda takes it a step further.
As the AWS Lambda site states:
"AWS Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. You pay only for the compute time you consume - there is no charge when your code is not running. With Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service - all with zero administration. Just upload your code and Lambda takes care of everything required to run and scale your code with high availability. You can set up your code to automatically trigger from other AWS services or call it directly from any web or mobile app."
In this workshop, you'll learn how to deploy your applications as independent functions, that respond to events, charge you only when they run, and scale automatically. The open source Serverless Framework helps to facilitate this and simplifies the deployment to Lambda -- all from the comfort of your command line.
“The Serverless Framework is a core component of The Coca-Cola Company's initiative to reduce IT operational costs and deploy services faster.”
