Imagine you are building a mobile game where users race to solve puzzles. As they solve the puzzles, they rack up points that help them show off their performance.
As part of your application, you need a leaderboard system where users can compare their performance against other players. Users will want to compare their total score against other players as well as view the leaderboard for specific levels in the game. Finally, a user may want to see all of the scores they’ve received in a particular level.
In this lab, you learn how to use Amazon Aurora Serverless and Amazon ElastiCache to handle these access patterns.
In Module 1, you configure your environment and download the code that you use during the lab.
Time to Complete Module: 20 Minutes
In this module, you learned about the example application you build in this lab. You also set up an AWS account and configured an AWS Cloud9 instance.
You are now ready to start the lab. In the next module, you provision your Amazon Aurora Serverless database.
