While static websites are both easy on AWS and important for many businesses, some degree of interactivity is now an expected part of the web. Whether it’s a shopping cart, sign-up form, or just a bit of interaction that goes beyond a simple link or button click, you need to be able to make your websites dynamic. AWS Lambda helps developers of all stripes—even those with little knowledge of back-end development—revolutionize their projects by leveraging a serverless approach to dynamic websites.

In this course, instructor Brett McLaughlin shows you how to use AWS tools—plus the technology you already know, such as JavaScript and HTML—to build a complete dynamic serverless website. Learn how to write a Lambda function that takes in a request from a web server and returns an HTML response with some interaction; send an email from a Lambda function; convert a Lambda function to avoid cross-domain and security issues; and more.
