Serverless Application Debugging and Delivery


Serverless Application Debugging and Delivery

Broadcast Date:
September 19, 2018

Level 300 | Use Case How-To
Moving from traditional enterprise applications to serverless applications shouldn’t mean you have to make sacrifices in your development release process. In this talk, we show you how to bring traditional debugging and deployment practices to your AWS Lambda based applications. Using the AWS Cloud9 IDE, we will set breakpoints that enable us to debug our application and follow the call path into the function code. We will install best practices by writing unit tests for our functions and then establish a release pipeline with AWS CodeStar that invokes those tests when we release application into testing or production. We will then use AWS X-Ray to trace and debug our distributed application in production.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn about local debugging with AWS SAM CLI
• Learn about adding a release pipeline and canary deployments with AWS CodeStar
• Learn about debugging distributed production applications with AWS X-Ray

Suited For: Developers, DevOps, Managers
