What are how these functions are used?
Most of the functions written are designed to operate within a specific and narrow area.
What if you had to reveal that job to a different team or the entire world?
In the past, this could introduce enormous difficulty when navigating the process of creating an infrastructure to deal with this kind of request. The time, money, and expertise required to change a system generally were too daunting and overwhelming for a concept to be anything more than an idea exercise.
Serverless has evened levels of playing fields by orchestrating all the infrastructure required to expose functions as an API on our behalf of us. This means that it is no longer a distance that separates a function's endpoint, and the endpoint is no longer like walking through a canyon rather than crossing a street.
Most front-end developers have a minimal understanding of how deployment projects function. Consequently, they are limited in presenting functions in a meaningful and usable manner.
In this class, you're going to show that the gap between the function and the endpoint isn't as long as one might think. In addition, you'll discover how you've already got the fundamental abilities to build robust APIs and then deploy them in the cloud.
Lukas will demonstrate how to connect the dots between function and the endpoint in the form of a few concrete and practical steps. It will help you get over the gap between writing functions but not creating them to be used.
- Generate Lambda functions using the Serverless framework
- Utilize Webhooks to link serverless functions into other services.
- Include other AWS services into serverless services
- Develop Lambda step functions by using the AWS console
- Create PDFs, generate mock APIs, or scrape websites!
