AWS Lambda for Developers Training Course


AWS Lambda is a “serverless” computing platform that allows engineers to create a small function, configure it in AWS console, and execute it without needing to provision servers—paying only for the resources used during the execution.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at developers who wish to use AWS Lambda to build and deploy services and applications to the cloud, without needing to worry about provisioning the execution environment (servers, VMs and containers, availability, scalability, storage, etc.).

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Configure AWS Lambda to execute a function.
  • Understand FaaS (Functions as a Service) and the advantages of serverless development.
  • Build, upload and execute AWS Lambda functions.
  • Integrate Lambda functions with different event sources.
  • Package, deploy, monitor and troubleshoot Lambda based applications.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
