AWS Serverless APIs & Apps - A Complete Introduction [Video]

More Information
  • Build, secure and run APIs without managing any servers using AWS API Gateway and Lambda
  • Host SPAs without managing any servers
  • Add user authentication to serverless applications
  • Run code on-demand in the cloud

This course will introduce you to serverless computing and then quickly dive into how to build serverless apps with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Specifically, you will learn:

  • To build a REST API without worrying about servers, using AWS API Gateway
  • Set up your on-demand code via AWS Lambda 
  • Execute Lambda code whenever incoming requests reach your defined REST endpoints
  • Store data in a database - naturally without managing any database servers!

We won't stop here though! Instead, you'll then dive even deeper into serverless computing and learn:

  • To add user authentication to your existing frontend apps and how you can then also protect your REST API against unauthenticated access with ease!
  • how you can easily integrate a complete user sign up & sign in flow (including user confirmation) into ANY app (web app, iOS or Android app!) with AWS Cognito
  • Deploy your web app in a serverless manner
  • Speed up the delivery of your static web app assets

Secure your serverless app

Maximilian Schwarzmüller

Maximilian Schwarzmüller - Professional Web Developer and Instructor Since the age of 13, Maximilian Schwarzmüller has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In the early days, he started creating websites for friends and for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the back end (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has increasingly become a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer, he had broadened his horizon by studying Business Administration, resulting in a Master's degree. This enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. Whilst learning and developing his skills, he realized that he enjoyed development more than these fields. As a self-taught professional, Max is familiar with the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. His track record is the best proof of that. Whether working as a development instructor or teaching Business Administration, he always receives great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new and better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
