Implementing a highly scalable Web Application without managing any serves may seem hard, but in
reality, it’s not. Serverless allows you to build applications without managing servers, making this
process easier by eliminating infrastructure management tasks.

If you are an IT student, take part in our AWS Serverless Workshop and you will learn how easy implementing applications without managing servers is.

In this hands-on workshop you will build a highly scalable Web Application on the Amazon Web
Services Public Cloud as a Serverless solution. We will start with a short Serverless introduction and
then jump to the exercises. First, you'll deploy a web application using AWS Lambda, API Gateway,
Amazon S3 and DynamoDB. The second part will illustrate how you can use AWS services to process real-time data streams without managing any servers. For this we will use Amazon Kinesis and
Amazon Athena in addition to the previous exercise. In the third part you will use AWS Step Functionsto build an image processing workflow.
