Building your First Serverless Web Application

Gone are the days of needing to manage servers for running your web-based applications, of needing to think about capacity management, spending time configuring and patching them, and being concerned with the general well-being of your server “pets”. This workshop will teach you how to build a single page web application with a serverless backend using services that will require no server management.

You'll learn how to host static web resources, how to manage users and authentication, and how to build both RESTful APIs and GraphQL interfaces for accessing data and service APIs.

In this fast-paced workshop, you’ll learn:

  • Hosting static sites
  • User management and authentication
  • Building serverless RESTful APIs & GraphQL interfaces to databases
  • Monitoring, logging, and troubleshooting serverless applictaions

Tools/Technologies covered in this workshop will be:

  • AWS Amplify
  • Amazon S3
  • Amazon DynamoDB
  • AWS Lambda
  • AWS AppSync
  • Amazon API Gateway
  • AWS SAM & AWS SAM CLI

Who Should Attend?

Whether you are brand new to modern application development with serverless, or are working with serverless every day, this workshop will have something for you. It will be a great place to begin understanding the concepts of serverless with hands on experience as well as sharpening skills of those who have been doing serverless for a while.
