Zombie Apocalypse Workshop: Building Serverless Microservices - San Francisco

Scenario: Zombies have taken over major metropolitan areas. The AWS Lambda Signal Corps has built a communications system to connect the remaining survivors.

Learn how AWS Lambda provides a platform for building event-driven microservices, all without the need to provision, manage, and scale servers. In this workshop, we will introduce the basics of building serverless microservices using AWS Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, and S3. You'll work within a team to build a secure, scalable, fault-tolerant chat service with global reach from scratch using blueprints provided by us. 

We will have a few special challenges for teams to complete. Rewards will be given to teams that complete all the extra-credit challenges.
