AWS Lambda Training

AWS Lambda with Node.js

AWS Lambda is changing the way that we build systems in the cloud. This new compute service in the cloud runs your code in response to events, automatically managing the compute resources for you.

This makes it dead simple to create applications that respond quickly to new information. Lambda is the backbone of Serverless Computing with AWS.

This is a comprehensive course that will teach you how to write, deploy, scale and manage lambda functions. Armed with this knowledge you’ll be able to architect solutions from tiny composable microservices that scale massively and respond almost in real time.

In this course we’ll take you through the entire Lambda journey.

From setting up your local environment, writing your first Lambda function, to deploying interesting and unique lambda functions that will help you massively scale your operations.

AWS Lambda Training


The hands on labs will show you how to write Lambda functions that:

Run when files change in S3 (eg. image thumbnail generation, metadata extraction, indexing etc)
Run when tables are updated in DynamoDB (eg. analytics/trend detection, auditing, etc)
Run when kinesis messages are received (eg. notification generation, message filtering, etc)

What are the pre-requisites for this Course?

A little bit of coding experience helps — ie. what is a function, a variable, etc

Some experience using the command-line/terminal helps


Who should go for this Course?

AWS Absolute Beginners. No prior AWS experience necessary.

Developers who want to build micro-services

Developers who want to build massively scalable systems

Solution architects (not just developers) who want to understand more about Lambda
