10/13/2017 – Course updated to add section on Serverless application security with Cognito

This course demonstrates a key strength of cloud computing in general and of Amazon Web Services platform in particular, the ability to go serverless.

By deploying serverless applications you don’t have to maintain any server to operate your application and you can ensure high availability and scalability of your application in the most cost effective way, this is mainly because you pay only for the resources you actually use and only when you use them.

In this course we will have a conceptual discussion of N-Tier Architecture and the possible ways to create it on Amazon Web Services, we will also discuss some of the possible ways and services that help you create N-Tier Serverless Architecture on AWS. In this course we will create an end-to-end serverless web application utilizing DynamoDB for backend, Lambda for Data Access Layer, API Gateway for integration layer and S3 for presentation layer.

The demo in this course sets the foundation seeds for high complexity serverless architectures.

Serverless Architecture on AWS

N-Tier Architecture Basics

Understand deployment environment complications and how to create N-Tier Architecture on AWS

Demo - Backend - DynamoDB

In this step of the demo we will create the backend tier using AWS DynamoDB Table

Demo - DAO Layer - Lambda

In this step of the demo we are going to create DAO layer using Lambda function

Demo - Integration Layer - API Gateway

In this step of the demo we will expose DAO layer as REST-Like service

Demo - Presentation Layer - S3

In this step of the demo we will deploy static resources to S3 and utilize S3 as presentation layer

Demo - Assign Domain - Route53

In this step of the demo we will use custom domain name to finalize the end-to-end web application

Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
