Description

With the rise of microservices and serverless functions, businesses need to break down their logic into smaller pieces that can be executed serverlessly anytime. Executing on most of these functions depends on others completing their part first, which can be a complex process to coordinate. In this course, Building Multi-step Applications with AWS Step Functions, you will learn how to create workflows that chain multiple Lambda Functions and other services together so that each can be executed in order based on a set of rules and decisions. First, you will learn how to create Step Function workflows. Next, you will explore the different workflow Step types and use them to create complex but easily-visualized workflows. After creating our workflows, you will learn how to trigger them, trace the execution of the steps, handle errors that might occur, and log the execution flow. Finally, you will discover best practices, limitations, and also how to secure your Step Functions. By the end of this course you will be able to take your existing business logic and serverless functions, break them into the smallest possible pieces, and add them to different workflows to fulfill your business needs.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, my name is not steal and welcome to my course building multistep applications with a W. Let's step functions. Modern applications are becoming more and more small. Independent media service is that fit together to make up the applications that we see today. Feeding all these service's together monitoring and tracking their progress is a very involved and complex task. Learn how AWS step functions work and how they can help us build large, complex, multi step work clothes that are easily debug and visualize. Some of the major topics that we look over in this course include creating step function were close with many different steps. Setting up error handling and retry logic using activities toe add logic that runs on our local environment, monitoring work for performance using cloudwatch events and finally learn about security and best practices when it comes to building step function were close. By the end of this course, you'll know how to take your existing micro service's and create multistep work. Clothes that are easy to visualize and monitor howto have called that runs on your own environment and make it part of your cloud. Were close using activities and how to debug work flows in development and production. Before beginning this course, I recommend that you are familiar with creating London functions and having some basic no jail skills to get the most out of it. I hope you'll join me on the journey to learn how to create work flows with the building multistep applications with a W Step functions course at lower side.
