Hands-On Lab

In this live AWS environment we will deploy a scaleable serverless API using CloudFormation. Specifically, we'll deploy our very own API, using a pre-configured CloudFormation template, with API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and DynamoDB. Then we'll review the CloudFormation template and test the API. When we're done, you'll understand how CloudFormation can be used effectively to describe entire architectures, without having to manually configure things inside of the AWS console or with other AWS tools.

Grab the CloudFormation template over here.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
