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.
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.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name's Tom Compagno and welcome to my course, Integrating Lead Forms, Salesforce, Slack, and Email with AWS. I am VP of technology at Contravent. Whether you work for a large company, or you're building your own products, AWS has over 70 services you can leverage to help build better software. In this course, we're going to leverage 7 of those 70 services to build a functioning, end-to-end business application that collects website leads and sends the data to three external services, including Slack, Salesforce, and email. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include Lambda Functions to support several key application services, Beanstalk and Golang to connect our app to Salesforce, the API Gateway will be our central point of service management, and finally, we will use SQS and Cloudwatch to help separate collections of leads from the processing of that data. By the end of this course, you'll be familiar with seven different amazon services and understand how you can use multiple programming languages with those services to build more applications. From here, continue your learning by diving into AWS with courses on Amazon RDS or AWS Storage Solutions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn AWS with Integrating Lead Forms, Salesforce, Slack, and Email with AWS, at Pluralsight.
