I’m running a live course on designing serverless architecture with AWS Lambda

Hi every­one, just a quick note to let you know that I’m run­ning a live online course with O’Reilly on design­ing server­less archi­tec­tures with AWS Lamb­da.

It’s a 2-day course on Sep­tem­ber 11–12th with 6 hours in total, and it’s avail­able for free if you have a sub­scrip­tion with Safari­Book­sOn­line. Reg­is­tra­tion for the course is open till Sep­tem­ber 7th, so if there are still spaces avail­able then you can even sign up for a free 10-day tri­al on Safari­Book­sOn­line just before reg­is­tra­tion clos­es and get the course for free.

Sign up here.

The course will cov­er a vari­ety of top­ics over the two days:

  • AWS Lamb­da basics
  • the Server­less frame­work
  • test­ing strate­gies
  • CI/CD
  • cen­tralised log­ging
  • dis­trib­uted trac­ing
  • mon­i­tor­ing
  • per­for­mance con­sid­er­a­tions includ­ing cold starts
  • con­fig man­age­ment
  • Lamb­da in VPC
  • secu­ri­ty
  • best prac­tices with API Gate­way and Kine­sis
  • step func­tions
