This intermediate-level AWS Lambda prepares cloud administrators to use AWS Lambda for building and deploying serverless applications for web app development, data processing, and mobile backend development.
Amazon Web Services offers many on-demand and as-a-service offerings, but Lambda might be one of the least understood. AWS Storage and AWS Compute are self-explanatory, but why, exactly, would a cloud administrator want to learn about an event-driven, serverless computing platform?
Imagine a platform that allows you to build small, on-demand applications that are responsive to new information happening within milliseconds of the event. You can build Node.js, Python, Java, Go, Ruby and C# applications, even native Linux executables, then let Lambda watch for their triggering events. Lambda can respond to table updates, website clicks, even sensor readings from IoT devices. AWS Lambda is incredibly powerful, but you won't get far with it if you don't understand its inner workings, interface and identities.
After finishing this AWS training, you'll know how to use AWS Lambda for building and deploying serverless applications for web app development, data processing, and mobile backend development.
For anyone who manages cloud administrators, this AWS training can be used to onboard new cloud administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a AWS reference resource.
AWS Lambda: What You Need to Know
For any cloud administrator looking to improve their proficiency with serverless infrastructure, this AWS course covers topics such as:
- Navigating the AWS Lambda console
- Writing and deploying Lambda functions
- Developing serverless apps within Lambda
- Deploying code samples, components and applications to the AWS Repository
Who Should Take AWS Lambda Training?
This AWS Lambda training is considered foundational-level AWS training, which means it was designed for cloud administrators. This Lambda skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with serverless infrastructure and experienced cloud administrators looking to validate their AWS skills.
New or aspiring cloud administrators. If you're new to cloud administration, learning how to use AWS Lambda early in your career can be a way of setting yourself apart as a subject matter expert in an obscure, but incredibly useful, skill. Take a look around your organization — if you run code to track image or object uploads to S3, need to automatically provision back-end service through HTTP requests, or have other ad-hoc compute requirements, mastering Lambda can make you the hero of your organization.
Experienced cloud administrators. If you've been working as a cloud administrator for several years, hopefully you've been expanding your familiarity with the tools and applications that exist to make your job better and easier. Learn how to leverage Lambda, your code will be cheaper to deploy and it'll work better. You'll also learn how AWS Lambda works within the AWS constellation of on-demand services alongside and in coordination with their other service offerings.
