Build & deploy a RESTful API application using AWS Lambda services
Create a front door to the AWS Lambda function using AWS API Gateway
In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to create a node.js RESTful API & launch it on AWS cloud servers using AWS Lambda & AWS API Gateway services. You will be using the AWS management console to create your RESTful API & deploy it to the AWS servers. You will be using a collaboration platform for API development called Postman to test your API’s. Additionally, you will learn more about reading the server/cloud logs & also, monitoring your AWS servers using AWS CloudWatch services. Note: To avoid distraction for set up during the course, we would recommend that you create an Amazon AWS account beforehand. Amazon AWS provides a free tier option for 1 year & the course materials will utilize services that fall under the free tier option.
