Description

At the heart of application development is a desire to rapidly create scalable and high-quality applications. In this course, Using the Serverless Framework with Node.js on AWS, you'll learn how to leverage the Serverless Framework to develop those kinds of applications. First, you'll explore the basic application model of serverless applications within the framework. Next, you'll uncover how to development and deploy fullstack serverless applications and microservices on AWS using the framework. Finally, you'll delve into how serverless applications can be used to create resilient fault-tolerant architectures. When you’re finished with this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of serverless application development using the framework, that will help you as you move forward to creating future serverless applications. Software required: Serverless Framework v1.x, Postman, an AWS Account, Node.js v6.10.3, and npm 3.10.10.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Fernando Medina Corey, and I'm a Pluralsight author. Welcome to my course on Using the Serverless Framework with Node. js on AWS. In this course, we're going to learn how to use the world's leading framework for serverless development, the serverless framework. Some of the major topics that we'll cover in this course include the serverless framework's application model, developing and deploying our own applications on AWS using the framework, how we can build highly scalable event-driven services, and how we could create resilient fault-tolerant application architectures using the framework. By the end of this course, you'll know all the fundamental concepts you'll need to work with the framework and have practiced each of them by creating your own serverless services, full stack applications, and CRUD APIs. Before beginning the course, you should be somewhat familiar with JavaScript, HTML, and the command-line, though all the commands, code, and installation instructions will be provided for you during the course. You may also want to take my Introduction to AWS Lambda course here on Pluralsight to get a more fundamental understanding of serverless applications. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about serverless application development with my course on using the serverless framework with Node. js on AWS here at Pluralsight.

Up and Running with the Serverless Framework on AWS
Hello, I'm Fernando Medina Corey, and welcome to module two, Up and Running with the Serverless Framework on AWS. In this module, we'll cover some of the installation steps for the serverless framework, some differences you might see between operating systems, and how to get set up with an AWS account if you haven't already. Then we'll look at the serverless framework's application model, where we will learn about functions, events, resources, and services, and how they work within the serverless framework. After that, we'll review some serverless development basics, including required configuration, how to deploy our code, and how we can think about testing it in the future. Toward the end of the module, we'll deploy our first project, a scheduled email reminder using AWS SES and Cloud Watch. So let's get started.
