Workshop: Building serverless APIs with AWS Lambda


🌈 We're back at ThoughtWorks for a Saturday workshop! 🌈

Zac Brown (he/him) is travelling all the way from Las Vegas to give us an intro to serverless.

He'll walk us through using the Serverless framework to build a simple RESTful API backed by DynamoDB, and deploying it to an AWS Lambda function.

Please bring a laptop if you'd like to follow along. If you'd prefer to sit and watch, that's fine too.

12pm - 1pm Lunch and hang out
1pm - 4pm Workshop
4pm Event ends

Lunch is kindly provided by Concisely Crafted.
