Learn AWS Lambda and Serverless Applications with me!

My latest course: Building Serverless Apps with AWS Lambda – Hands On! is now available, and you can get it for $14.99.

In this course, I’ve teamed up with my former colleague from Amazon, Brian Tajuddin. We were both at Amazon while AWS was being created, and we’re excited to share what we know with people eager to learn about Amazon Web Services. It’s definitely a hot skill, and there’s a reason it’s the most sought after topic on Udemy right now.

This is our first truly project-based course; it walks you through creating a fully functional chat application from beginning to end – using nothing but AWS services. It’s kind of amazing that you can build a scalable, complex web application like this without maintaining any servers of your own – not even on EC2. Along the way, you’ll learn how to use Amazon’s S3, Lambda, DynamoDB, Cognito, API Gateway, IAM, and Cloudfront services. It’s a great hands-on introduction to some of AWS’s biggest services, and you’ll end up in a much better place to prepare for any AWS certification exams you might be thinking of taking down the road. It’s also an eye opener for anyone still building web applications in the traditional way, on top of a big HTTP server running back-end service code that you need to maintain. Using AWS Lambda in particular allows you to run server-side code without actually maintaining a server, and that’s a game-changer.

Sounds interesting? It is! Go enroll now.
