Furthering your serverless skills with a new training course

The serverless approach allows for the creation of agile applications, enabling faster innovation and adaptation to change. The use of serverless computing means that tasks related to infrastructure management, such as capacity provisioning and patching, are managed by AWS. This allows developers to focus solely on writing code that benefits their customers. AWS Lambda is an example of a serverless service that offers automatic scaling, high availability, and a billing model based on value. This event-driven compute service can run code in response to over 150 natively integrated AWS and SaaS sources, without requiring the management of servers.  

Serverless is not only a technological approach but also a mindset, where developers prioritize “serverless first” instead of “serverless also”. As more developers adopt this approach, AWS is offering a new AWS Training and Certification course, “Developing Serverless Solutions on AWS,” to further develop their serverless skills. 

AWS Lambda: The future of serverless computing and simplified application development 

AWS Lambda is a service that allows for code to be executed without the need for server provisioning or management. The compute infrastructure for Lambda is highly available and handles all administration of compute resources, including server maintenance, capacity provisioning, automatic scaling, and logging. With Lambda, it is possible to run code for any kind of application or backend service. By simply providing code written in one of the supported languages.  

This code is organized into Lambda functions, which only run when necessary and can scale automatically from a few requests to thousands per second. You only pay for the compute time that you consume, and there are no charges when the code is not running. Further information on pricing can be found on the AWS Lambda Pricing page.

Why build a serverless application? 

Building a serverless application allows you to focus on your application code instead of managing and operating infrastructure. You do not have to think about provisioning or configuring servers since AWS handles all of this for you. This reduces your infrastructure management burden and helps you get time-to-market faster.

Course Code Course Title Fees (RM) Days Apr May Jun
AWS-DSS Developing Serverless Solutions on AWS 5,400 3 19-21 21-23

What will you learn from this course?

  • Apply event-driven best practices to a serverless application design using appropriate AWS services
  • Identify the challenges and trade-offs of transitioning to serverless development, and make recommendations that suit your development organization and environment
  • Build serverless applications using patterns that connect AWS managed services together, and account for service characteristics, including service quotas, available integrations, invocation model, error handling, and event source payload
  • Compare and contrast available options for writing infrastructure as code, including AWS CloudFormation, AWS Amplify, AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM), and AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK)
  • And much more

The course includes training on the three essential aspects of observability (i.e., cost, performance, resilience) and utilizes Amazon CloudWatch and AWS X-Ray. It also delves into application-scaling considerations that are specific to Lambda, such as error handling and concurrency, as well as topics like virtual private cloud and security. Students will construct a distributed application that adheres to a “serverless-first” approach.

The course provides various forms of guidance, including presentations, group exercises, hands-on labs, knowledge assessments, and demonstrations.
