Serverless Computing: The Big Picture

by Richard Seroter

Serverless gets framed as the "next big thing" but it's more than hype. Rather, it's the first cloud-native computing paradigm and may change how you build software. This course explains the technology and patterns you need to know to be successful.

What you'll learn

What is serverless computing and how can you use it effectively to build software? In this course, Serverless Computing: The Big Picture, you will learn the foundational knowledge needed to architect serverless systems. First, you will discover what it means to be serverless, and how it compares to traditional software development. Next, you will explore the most important platforms and technologies for delivering serverless solutions. Finally, you will see examples of serverless architectures that you can implement. When you are finished with this course, you will have the knowledge needed to start designing serverless systems.
