In this course, through practical working examples, you will learn about the serverless concepts and AWS Lambda's serverless framework and how to work with its components effectively. The primary goal of serverless apps is to reduce backend clutter and to focus on the code and not on the server. We will show you how to build popular applications that follow this principle.

This course guides you through a faster way to learn the skills you'll need to utilize AWS Lambda's serverless infrastructure.
