I’m getting acquainted with the Serverless framework in preparation for the next big app I’ll be working on. Yesterday I did some basic scaffolding and deployed a basic Node app using Express with Lambda functions. Next up is connecting a DynamoDB database..in working on this I learned that a lot of the config settings that need to go into the
serverless.yml file are actually AWS CloudFormation syntax, so I’ll need to get familiar with that before I’ll probably feel comfortable building the full API.
As I go I’m writing up a full step-by-step for future reference; when I’m done with it, I’ll link it HERE.
Here are a few of the resources I explored today:
- Serverless Framework Introduction: YouTube playlist explaining the basics of deploying serverless functions
- Building a REST API with Serverless: YouTube playlist walking through the REST methods, a bit old
- Creating a REST API with Node & Express Tutorial: From the Serverless framework docs
- AWS DynamoDB Developer Guide: Includes the naming structure for serverless config
