Getting started with serverless applications (Level 200)

Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications without the need for managing servers. You can develop web, mobile, and IoT backends, run stream processing or big data workloads, run chatbots, and more, without worrying about the infrastructure. In this session, we show you how to get started with serverless computing using AWS Lambda. With Lambda, you can run your code without provisioning or managing servers. Discover why serverless is an excellent toolset for experimenting with new ideas and how the modularity and extensibility of serverless applications enable you to start small and quickly add features. We introduce you to the broader portfolio of AWS services that can help you build serverless applications with AWS Lambda, including Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, and more. Additionally, we use the AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) tool to build our serverless applications and deploy them via code.
