Chris Coyier - The All Powerful Front End Developer #video - “The internet is, without metaphor, just a bunch of servers tied together with wires. Without servers, we'd have no way to share our creations with the world. Yet, in a bit of a paradox, servers are less essential to our work than they've ever been. We can now do things on the front-end that used to require a back end. When we do need a back end, our front-end skills can be put to work, giving us some surprisingly powerful new abilities. Join Chris on a whirlwind tour of the tools, tech, and code that puts more power than ever into our front-end hands.”
Find a domain, create a site, and get custom email #course - "Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications and services without having to manage infrastructure. This training course is targeted at IT professionals who need to gain a foundational knowledge of serverless computing—what it is and why it's important—and what's offered by serverless computing technologies like AWS Lambda and Azure Functions. Instructor David Linthicum begins with the basics: what serverless computing is and the problems it can solve. He then runs through demos of both Lambda and Functions and explores effective use cases for serverless computing."
AWS Serverless Application Model - "The AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) is an open-source framework for building serverless applications. It provides shorthand syntax to express functions, APIs, databases, and event source mappings. With just a few lines per resource, you can define the application you want and model it using YAML. During deployment, SAM transforms and expands the SAM syntax into AWS CloudFormation syntax, enabling you to build serverless applications faster."
Serverless Pitfalls: Issues With Running a Startup on AWS Lambda #article - "In the process, we learned a lot about what running a website on Lambda means and what one can gain from doing so. We also experienced a few hiccups which we’re going to list here, in the hope that being aware will save others time and headaches."
Zappa - "Zappa makes it super easy to build and deploy server-less, event-driven Python applications (including, but not limited to, WSGI web apps) on AWS Lambda + API Gateway. Think of it as "serverless" web hosting for your Python apps. That means infinite scaling, zero downtime, zero maintenance - and at a fraction of the cost of your current deployments!"
