It has evolved a lot since the time it started out by providing just basic services such as EC2 and S3 and today; they go all the way from IoT to Machine Learning, Image recognition, Chatbot Frameworks, and much more! One of those recent services that is also gaining a lot of traction is AWS Lambda! Although seemingly simple and easy to use, Lambda is a highly effective and scalable compute service that provides developers with a powerful platform to design and develop Serverless event-driven systems and applications. The book begins with a high-level introduction into the world of Serverless computing and its advantages and use cases, followed by a deep dive into AWS Lambda! You'll learn what services AWS Lambda provides to developers; how to design, write, and test Lambda functions; as well as monitor and troubleshoot them. The book is designed and accompanied with a vast variety of real-world examples, use cases, and code samples that will enable you to get started on your Serverless applications quickly. By the end of the book, you will have gained all the skills required to work with AWS Lambda services! Style and approach This step-by-step guide will help you build Serverless applications and run Serverless workloads using the AWS Lambda service. You'll be able to get started with it in a matter of minutes with easy-to-follow code snippets and examples.

Deploy functions efficiently using different cloud-based serverless offerings Key Features Understand the concept of Function-as-a-Service Implement Serverless solutions using AWS Lambda, Azure Functions and Google Cloud Functions Practical approach towards choosing the best tool for your serverless environment Book Description Serverless applications and architectures are gaining momentum and are increasingly being used by companies of all sizes. Serverless software takes care of many problems that developers face when running systems and servers, such as fault tolerance, centralized logging, horizontal scalability, and deployments. You will learn how to harness serverless technology to rapidly reduce production time and minimize your costs, while still having the freedom to customize your code, without hindering functionality. Upon finishing the book, you will have the knowledge and resources to build your own serverless application hosted in AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform, and will have experienced the benefits of event-driven technology for yourself. This hands-on guide dives into the basis of serverless architectures and how to build them using Node.js as a programming language, Visual Studio Code for code editing, and Postman for quickly and securely developing applications without the hassle of configuring and maintaining infrastructure on three public cloud platforms. What you will learn Understand the benefts of serverless computing and know when to use it Develop serverless applications on AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Get to grips with Function as a Service (FaaS) Apply triggers to serverless functions Build event-driven apps using serverless frameworks Use the Node.js programming language to build serverless apps Use code editors, such as Visual Studio Code, as development environments Master the best development practices for creating scalable and practical solutions Who this book is for This book is targeted towards developers, system administrators or any stakeholder working in the Serverless environment and want to understand how functions work.
