At the core of AWS Lambda is a thorough knowledge of developing and deploying functions. In this course, Introduction to Developing AWS Lambdas in Java, you’ll learn how to develop and deploy AWS Lambda functions in Java. First, you’ll see how to create an AWS developer account, set up the development environment, and code Lambda functions in Java. Next, you’ll explore how to set up and access S3 from your functions and exchange data using JSON-to-Pojo mapping. Finally, you’ll discover how to use the AWS API Gateway to deploy Lambda functions as RESTful web services. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have a foundational knowledge of AWS Lambda that will help you as you move forward to developing your own Lambda functions in Java.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Richard Monson- Haefel, and welcome to my course, Introduction to Developing AWS Lambdas in Java. I'm a software architect and engineer at Tomitribe and have been working in Enterprise Java since early 1996. In serverless cloud computing, AWS is the undisputed leader. It was the first in 2014 to introduce the concept of Functions as a Service when it launched AWS Lambda. This course is a quick introduction to AWS Lambda development in Java. No prior experience in AWS, serverless functions, or Enterprise Java development is required. We get started immediately with creating and configuring your free AWS development account and installing and using the Eclipse IDE with the AWS Toolkit plugin for easy command line-free development. As soon as the tools are in place, we'll go straight into developing AWS Lambda functions in Java. You'll get coverage about development, as well as deployment and configuration. By the end of this course, you'll know exactly how to develop and deploy AWS Lambda functions in Java, and you'll be ready for any other courses on AWS Lambda or related services. I hope that you will join me in learning about this cutting edge and exciting new era of serverless development in Introduction to Developing AWS Lambdas in Java, here on Pluralsight.
