You can create a professional grade API using serverless technology without cost and complexity of server configuration maintenance and deployment. In this talk we will see how to use the Srverless framework with AWS Lambda, Nodejs and DynamoDB to create a fully functioning and testable API. Using these tools we will learn how to configure our runtime environment in a way that we can setup and deploy with a single command. Once deployed our code will only run when invoked which means it can scale well without paying hosting fees for unused resources.
At the end of this talk you will know what options are available to write and deploy a back end API that accepts requests, stores and searches data, and provides quick data access to our front end developers.
