Summary

AWS Lambda in Action is an example-driven tutorial that teaches you how to build applications that use an event-driven approach on the back end. Starting with an overview of AWS Lambda, the audiobook moves on to show you common examples and patterns you can use to call Lambda functions from a web page or a mobile app. 

The second part of the audiobook puts these smaller examples together to build larger applications. By the end, you'll be ready to create applications that take advantage of the high availability, security, performance, and scalability of AWS.  

With AWS Lambda, you write your code and upload it to the AWS cloud. AWS Lambda responds to the events triggered by your application or your users and automatically manages the underlying computer resources for you. Your application is divided into small functions, leading naturally to a reactive architecture and the adoption of microservices.  

What's inside:

  • Create a simple API 
  • Create an event-driven media-sharing application 
  • Secure access to your application in the cloud 
  • Use functions from different clients like web pages or mobile apps 
  • Connect your application with external services  

Requires basic knowledge of JavaScript. Some examples are also provided in Python. No AWS experience is assumed.  

Danilo Poccia is a technical evangelist at Amazon Web Services and a frequent speaker at public events and workshops.

Not great for technical books

Audible is great for story listening and other novel type of books, it is useless for technical books.
While listening the book, wherever there are tables / design / architecture diagrams, it just skips them. I don't expect audible to read a diagram but at least, it should give me a chance to look at the table /diagram / design.

In this case, I would rather love kindle's built-in audio. I can listen on kindle while still following technical diagrams on the book visually.
