Master AWS on Easy Mode with

with Brian LeRoux


Cloud functions have been taking the industry by storm. Always available, scale transparently, only pay for the compute you use (100% utilization) and deploy instantly with zero downtime. However getting started is frought with complexity and configuration. In this workshop you will quickly learn all the angles of 'serverless' technology using Amazon Web Services:

  • Lambda
  • API Gateway 
  • Route53
  • S3
  • Simple Notification Service 
  • DynamoDB 
  • CloudFront
  • CloudWatch Events

JSF Architect tames AWS complexity, and gets you immediately productive deploying live to isolated staging and production environments. We will setup a CRON function that runs on an interval completely in the cloud. We'll create a website on a brand new domain and be deploying to in seconds complete with user auth and state. We'll create a stateless restful JSON API. We'll close the workshop by building a completely functional bot for Slack.

We're gonna set everything up on their own AWS account from nothing to fully deployed "serverless" app on a domain.


Workshop Requirements

  • Laptop with wifi-internet access and with an AWS account setup
  • AWS credentials setup on your machine
  • $7 (or more if they wish!) to buy a domain name on Route53
  • An internet connection
