This course prepares you to implement serverless environments fully, or simply experiment with serverless engineering patterns so you can evaluate the benefits for yourself.
It's been estimated that somewhere between 50-80% of the time and money you spend building, deploying, and maintaining applications on-premise is spent on "undifferentiated heavy lifting" – the provisioning, maintenance, and hardware refreshes of underlying servers, routers, load balancers, and disk drives. Only by jettisoning these outdated practices can you realize the full cost savings and agility potential of the cloud. Serverless practices make provisioning and modification of resources as simple as a few minutes or few seconds of effort, and by providing auto-scaling, auto-rebalancing, HA and DR out of the box, serverless architectures allow your team to spend nearly 100% of their efforts on tasks that really move the needle for your business -- building new products and features that customers and users will love.
Get hands-on practice and go back to work ready to immediately apply or improve your own serverless architecture patterns, as well as communicating with management about their benefits.
This class is designed to be a practical workshop which goes beyond concepts and gives you tangible engineering skills you can apply in your own IT organization. Much of the class is spent in our enterprise lab environment, giving you hands-on practice with the tools and technologies behind serverless architecture. Guided by a senior engineering instructor, you’ll have the opportunity to tinker and test in a safe classroom environment so you can learn what’s really applicable to your own teams.
Who Should Attend:
Lab #1: Cost-benefit analysis for serverless adoption – Calculate costs of EC2 vs Lambda-backed web services, and discuss as a class the tradeoffs associated with this type of use case.
Lab #2: Access control with tags – We will immediately prioritize security in serverless environments and will continue to do so throughout the rest of class. In this exercise, you will walk through best practices for access control, and use tags to tie access control to security policy.
Lab #3: Use Athena to analyze ELB logs – One of the most immediate sources of value and cost savings associated with serverless patterns is automatically understanding and managing the load. In this exercise, we will use AWS Athena to demonstrate a few of the simplest techniques for doing so.
Lab #4: Create and call your first Lambda function – This exercise will have us working like functional programmers. Depending on needs of the class, we’ll use lab examples in Python, Java, .NET and/or Node.
Lab #5: Debugging Lambda function, rolling back, calling disparate versions
Lab #6: Real-time event-driven data analytics on S3 data load – We’ll create a production load exercise and run an analytics solution using real-time triggers and a realistic data environment.
Lab #7: Using SQS and SNS for batch processing
Lab #8: Using AWS VPC, ELB, DNS
