Amazon Web Services (AWS) is home to some of the most innovative cloud technologies on the web. This course will teach you how to construct Serverless applications and how to monitor any kind of web application with AWS.
AWS continues to innovate in the domain of cloud service technology and keeping up can often be overwhelming. In this course, AWS Developer: Serverless Architecture and Monitoring, you will learn some of the newest innovations in AWS, such as Serverless applications and application monitoring. First, you will explore how to correctly architect applications using technologies such as Lambda, API Gateway, and Kinesis to create a true Serverless application. Next, you will discover a new monitoring technology created in AWS X-Ray, which lets you monitor all types of applications in AWS. Finally, you will learn how to configure monitoring for applications in AWS using X-Ray and CloudWatch alarms. When you are finished with this course, you will have the knowledge of how to create Serverless applications in AWS and the ability to monitor any type of application with X-Ray.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Ryan Lewis, and welcome to my course, AWS Developer: Serverless Architecture and Monitoring. I've been architecting and creating serverless applications in AWS for many years in my work for large enterprises as a senior engineer. Amazon Web Services started the serverless revolution after launching Lambda in 2014, and it's still the best place to create distributed serverless applications. AWS continues to innovate in the field of serverless and has also introduced some incredibly powerful services for monitoring any kind of web application. As improved tooling and support services for applications continue to be introduced, AWS is cementing itself as the platform of choice for most enterprise companies. In this course, we are going to go deep into both of those topics, serverless architecture and monitoring. We'll architect an application using many of AWS's most popular services and then configure monitoring to be able to keep an eye on everything. Some of the major topics that we will cover include improving performance, stability, and security with AWS Lambda; configuring serverless event sources, such as API Gateway and Kinesis; monitoring applications with AWS X‑Ray; and creating CloudWatch alarms to monitor serverless applications. By the end of this course, you'll have a new understanding of how to build and deploy serverless applications and monitor any application in AWS. Before beginning the course, you should have a good understanding of AWS services and have some experience using them. I hope you'll join me on this journey to master Amazon Web Services with the AWS Developer: Serverless Architecture and Monitoring course, at Pluralsight.
