In this workshop, we run through the Serverless framework and provide guidance on what types of applications are suitable candidates for Serverless architectures. We will take one scenario and help you build it out using AWS services. We will also dive deep into an array of solutions, examine how they work, explore best practices, and apply these teachings. You can expect to leave the workshop with a working prototype of the proposed scenario.
