AWS Fundamentals: Building Serverless Applications

Amazon Web Services and Amazon via Coursera

This course may be unavailable.


This course will introduce you to Amazon Web Services (AWS) serverless architecture. Through demonstrations and hands-on exercises you'll learn skills in building and deploying serverless solutions.

Using real-world examples of a serverless website and chat bot, you'll build upon your existing knowledge of the AWS cloud to take advantage of the benefits of modern architectures for greater agility, innovation, and lower total cost of ownership across a range of AWS services, including AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Lex.

In this course, you'll have the option to complete hands-on exercises. We strongly suggest you take advantage of the AWS Free Tier to follow the lab exercises provided by throughout the course. Be aware that any services used outside of the free tier may result in you incurring charges through your AWS account. Class forums will also allow you to ask questions and interact with AWS training instructors. After completing this course, you'll have the knowledge and skills to build serverless solutions on AWS.

This course has been developed by AWS, and is delivered by AWS technical instructors who teach cloud computing courses around the globe.

  • This course guides you into creating a cloud application using serverless lambda. It integrates a static website on S3 with CloudFront CDN, API gateway, serverless lambdas, a DynamoDB table and lex chatbot service.

    This is a good course to get an idea of how these cloud services are integrated into an application.
    No programming involved, the code needed for the exercise is provided. So it is mainly about configuring the services.
