Integrating Lead Forms, Salesforce, Slack, and Email with AWS

by Tom Compagno

AWS is a popular cloud service used today. This course will show you how to leverage seven Amazon services to build a functioning application that integrates with Salesforce and Slack, two powerful business tools in the marketplace.

What you'll learn

When building software using AWS, you need thorough knowledge of what services to leverage in any particular software product design. In this course, Integrating Lead Forms, Salesforce, Slack, and Email with AWS, you will learn how to design and build a fully functioning end-to-end business application. You will accomplish this using three different programming languages. First, you'll learn how to use a Lambda function to accept a form submission and place the message in a queue. Next, you'll explore Cloud Watch, and learn how it monitors the queue to launch a simple Lambda workflow with decision points to send email notifications via SES, a contact message to a Slack channel and all the lead data to Salesforce. Finally, you'll take everything you've learned and you will build a simple form processor. When you're finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of key Amazon services needed to support developers that will help you move forward to build better applications, in less time.
