  • Course details

    Serverless architecture moves computing from physical servers to the cloud. This course provides a broad overview of the different types of design patterns available for serverless application development and deployment. Instructor Lynn Langit covers the core concepts behind serverless, including its costs, benefits, and risks. Then she reviews serverless services, including messaging, storage, streaming, payment processing, and deployment, and related solutions: AWS Lambda, Kinesis, Auth0, Kubernetes, and more. She reviews cloud-native architectures for serverless applications that incorporate third-party APIs, notifications, Internet of Things sensors, big data, and machine learning. Plus, learn about emergent architectures that support migration and hybrid serverless functionality. Each chapter is illustrated with real-world use cases that showcase the cost, scalability, and productivity benefits of serverless architecture in action.

    Skills covered in this course

  • Understand serverless

    - [Lynn] Have you heard the term serverless architecture and wondered exactly what that meant? Were you thinking it had to do with containers maybe, functions, servers? We'll explore what are best fit use cases and commonly used architectures in a number of serverless scenarios. We'll take a look at types of services, which include Compute, such as AWS Lamda functions and others, storage, such as object stores, NoSQL databases. We'll also include serverless services for new types of functionality, such as machine learning, and more. I'm Lynn Langit. We have lots to cover, so let's get started.
