Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus service that helps connect external SaaS providers with your own applications and AWS services. EventBridge enables you to decouple your architectures to make it faster to build and innovate, using routing rules to deliver events to selected targets. For serverless builders developing event-driven applications, EventBridge makes it easy to discover event schemas, create a registry of events, and use a robust, highly available event bus to connect data across services. In this learning path, you will get an overview of EventBridge, the basics of event-driven architectures, as well as a deeper dive into EventBridge capabilities, and how best to use in your serverless applications. By the end, you will be ready to create and consume events, how to connect with SaaS providers, and how to make events a central part of your application design.
