AWS Lambda is a compute service that runs your code without provisioning or managing servers. Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale.
This session will familiarize you with the basics of AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway and demonstrate how to build web, mobile, and IoT backends using these services. You will learn how to setup API endpoints that trigger AWS Lambda functions to handle mobile, web, IoT, and 3rd party API requests. You will also learn how to use Lambda to read and write to Amazon DynamoDB. We will run through a demo of setting up a simple serverless blogging web application that allows user authentication and the ability to create posts and comments.
