Serverless Bytes

30-minute getting started workshop for serverless data processing


Are you looking to get started building serverless data processing apps? And do you love to code?

In a 30-minute live stream on Twitch, our Senior Developer Advocate, Chris, and Senior Solutions Architect, Kashif, will guide you through developing and deploying a serverless data processing app using AWS Lambda and Amazon Kinesis. They will show you how to stream image data from Twitter and analyze them with Amazon Rekognition to give an alert when a specific celebrity is recognized. You will gain hands-on experience with serverless applications and get your questions answered in real-time.

Wondering what is serverless computing?

Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. Serverless applications don't require you to provision, scale, and manage any servers. You can build them for nearly any type of application or backend service, and everything required to run and scale your application with high availability is handled for you.

AWS Lambda is one of the main services in serverless apps. With AWS Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service - all with zero administration. Just upload your code and Lambda takes care of everything required to run and scale your code.

You can use AWS Lambda and Amazon Kinesis to process real-time streaming data for application activity tracking, transaction order processing, click stream analysis, data cleansing, metrics generation, log filtering, indexing, social media analysis, and IoT device data telemetry and metering.
