Serverless architectures let you build and deploy applications and services with infrastructure resources that require zero administration. In the past, you had to provision and scale servers to run your application code, install and operate distributed databases, and build and run custom software to handle API requests. Now, AWS provides a stack of scalable, fully-managed services that eliminates these operational complexities.
In this session, you learn about the concepts and benefits of serverless architectures and the basics of the serverless stack AWS provides (e.g., AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway). We discuss use cases such as data processing, website backends, serverless applications and "operational glue". After that, you get practical tips and tricks, best practices, and architecture patterns that you can take back and implement immediately.
