AWS Step Functions

AWS Step Functions makes it easy to coordinate the components of serverless applications and microservices using visual workflows. Step Functions provides a graphical console to arrange and orchestrate the functions of your application as a series of steps. This makes it simple to build, run, and scale multistep applications.

Six things you need to know before attending an AWS serverless workshop:

All participants must have an AWS account established and ready to use at the event. You must also bring your own laptop.

There is no charge to attend.

Basic familiarity with AWS and services like AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Kinesis is recommended but not required.

Both workshops will teach you the essentials of building serverless applications using AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway. However, each workshop has a slightly different use case focus and each workshop may cover some different AWS services from the other.

Each workshop will last 2-3 hours.

Please contact your account manager who can identify when the next virtual or in person workshop to suit your requirements will be running.
