I am pleased to announce that next weekend (May 29, 2021) I will be organising an online workshop on building web applications with the Serverless approach in Ruby.
During the several hours of workshops, we will create from scratch a fully Serverless application, based on the Serverless Framework. If you would like to attend the workshop, feel free to register this form. The time of the workshop will be in the European timezone. Everyone is more than welcome.
For those unable to attend online, there will be instructions for the workshop, and a repository with the finished application.
If you are wondering where the idea for such a workshop came from? There is very little material related to serverless topics on the Internet, especially for Ruby. I've been working with Serverless approach for a few years now, so it's nice to share this knowledge with others. There is no better way to learn something new than through practice.
During the workshop I plan to create an application from scratch considering the following AWS services:
- AWS Lambda for smaller unit of application logic in the form of single purpose functions.
- AWS DynamoDB to store and retrieve any amount of data, to serve any amount of request traffic.
- AWS API Gateway for API creation.
All of the above services will be coupled using the Serverless Framework.
I invite everyone to participate. Each participant will learn the basics of the Serverless approach, the basics of building a serverless application, and at the end of the day create it independently with the help of AWS services. The application will be fully scalable, and cost-effective.
