Serverless Architectures on AWS, Second Edition

Serverless Architectures on AWS, Second Edition teaches you how to design, secure, and manage serverless backend APIs for web and mobile applications on the AWS platform. You'll get going quickly with this book's relevant real-world examples, code listings, diagrams, and clearly-described architectures that you can readily apply to your own work. You'll master serverless systems using AWS Lambda and the myriad other services on the AWS platform.
