Building serverless applications today is now easier and faster than ever, with powerful tools and resources. Amazon DynamoDB is a fast and flexible, on-demand NoSQL database with no servers to provision, patch, or manage and no software to install, maintain, or operate. DynamoDB works seamlessly with AWS Lambda, a serverless compute service to help build fully managed serverless applications. Join us for this hands-on, virtual workshop where you can learn more about DynamoDB and Lambda, including some key benefits such as flexible scaling, pay-per-request billing, and high availability. Join AWS Senior Practice Manager, DynamoDB expert Rick Houlihan and AWS Data Hero Alex DeBrie for a live workshop as they introduce these two services, demonstrate how to combine DynamoDB and Lambda in a serverless application. They’ll show common patterns in serverless architectures, including how to use DynamoDB as your application database and how to process DynamoDB Streams with a Lambda function, as well as foundational concepts like using infrastructure-as-code and managing IAM permissions for your Lambda functions.
