To build a solution with AWS Serverless technology, you will need to learn about the following:
AWS Lambda: This is the core service for building serverless applications on AWS. With AWS Lambda, you can run code without provisioning or managing servers.
Amazon API Gateway: This service allows you to create, deploy, and manage APIs for your serverless applications.
AWS Event Sources: These are services that can trigger your AWS Lambda functions, such as changes to a file in Amazon S3, updates to a DynamoDB table, or a message in an SQS queue.
AWS CloudFormation: This service allows you to describe and provision your serverless infrastructure using templates written in YAML or JSON.
AWS Step Functions: This service allows you to coordinate multiple AWS services into serverless workflows.
To learn about these services and how to use them to build a solution, you can start by visiting the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) website which provides a simplified way of defining the architecture of your serverless applications and resources required for them.
You can also take the AWS Serverless Application Developer course on AWS Training and Certification. This course covers the basics of building serverless applications on AWS, including an overview of the AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and AWS Event Sources.
Additionally, the AWS Developer Center provides a variety of resources such as tutorials, documentation, and sample code to help you learn how to build serverless applications on AWS.
In addition to that, AWS provides a free tier for some of its services which allows you to test and experiment with them without incurring any charges.
