Zombies! Zombies have taken over major metropolitan areas. The AWS Lambda Signal Corps has built a communications system to connect remaining survivors. Come learn how AWS Lambda provides a platform for building event-driven microservices, all without the need to provision, manage, and scale servers. In this workshop, we will introduce the basics of using AWS Lambda to run code in response to events from Amazon DynamoDB, S3, and API Gateway. You'll work within a team to build a secure, scalable, fault-tolerant chat service with global reach from scratch using blueprints provided by us. Unfortunately, the blueprints provided only describe a very rudimentary communications system (the engineers of the project got mysteriously ill). We are looking to you and your team to add additional real-time life saving features (e.g., food cache locations, zombie motion detectors, undead counters) to the chat platform using Lambda functions.

Overview of the Workshop Labs The Zombie Microservices Workshop introduces the basics of building serverless applications using AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Cognito, Amazon SNS, and other AWS services. In this workshop, as a new member of the AWS Lambda Signal Corps, you are tasked with completing the development of a serverless survivor communications system during the Zombie Apocalypse.
