AWS Lambda - A Guide to Serverless Microservices takes a comprehensive look at developing "serverless" workloads using the new Amazon Web Services Lambda service. Lambda enables users to develop code that executes in response to events - API calls, file uploads, schedules etc. - and upload it without worrying about managing traditional server metrics such as disk space, memory, or CPU usage. With its "per execution" cost model, Lambda can enable organizations to save hundreds or thousands of dollars on computing costs. With in depth walkthroughs, large screenshots, and complete code samples, the reader is guided through the step-by-step process of creating new functions, responding to infrastructure events, developing API backends, executing code at specified intervals, and much more. Since its introduction at AWS re-invent in 2014, AWS Lambda has continued to be one of the fastest growing AWS services. With its arrival, a new application architecture diagram paradigm was created - referred to as serverless. AWS now provides a number of different services that allows you to build full assistants, Internet of Things (IoT) backends, and more can all be fully serverless. For the logic layer of a serverless application, you can execute your business logic using AWS Lambda. Developers and organizations are finding that AWS Lambda is enabling much faster development speed and experimentation than is possible when deploying applications in a traditional server-based environment. This book is meant to provide you with a broad overview of AWS Lambda, its features, a hands-on and indepth guide to serverless microservices and a slew of recommendations. So what're you waiting for? Get a copy of this AWS Lambda book now!
