The core of serverless architectures is auto-scaling systems and pay-per-execution pricing. Two traits that allow developers to significantly reduce operational cost and complexity, by outsourcing infrastructure management to cloud providers and focus on building business logic.

In this course, we walk through the basics of how to create a serverless API. We start off by creating a simple HTTP endpoint. Then we build the first two endpoints of a REST API for a simple Todo Application backend storing the data in DynamoDB. After watching this course you will be ready to get started building your first serverless backend.
