The Life of a Serverless Microservice on AWS

The Life of a Serverless Microservice on AWS

In this 60 minute session we will develop, test, deploy and operate a production ready microservice using the AWS ecosystem. The combination of AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway allows us to operate a REST endpoint without the need of any virtual machines. We will use Amazon DynamoDB as our database, Amazon CloudWatch for metrics and logs, and AWS CodeCommit and AWS CodePipeline as our delivery pipeline. Production ready includes:
* automated testing
* API authentication
* logs (collection and alerts)
* monitoring (metrics and alerts)
* continuous build and deploy pipeline
This will be a hands-on session with live coding and sharing of practical experience. I promise: there will be no servers!
