About This Course

This course is designed to teach you serverless computing essentials which include how to develop serverless applications composed of loosely-coupled, microservice-like functions. You will get the opportunity to learn more about serverless programming and deployment models as well as its top use cases and design patterns. Additionally, you will be guided through several labs that demonstrate how to implement essential concepts including how to create, deploy, and invoke cloud-based functions, connect them to event sources for automation and expose them as web-accessible endpoints and APIs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After you complete this course, you will be able to:
  • ¬†Comprehend how serverless computing works and ways it can be used in cloud applications
  • ¬†Distinguish use cases and patterns compatible with Serverless
  • ¬†Create and manage serverless functions using the IBM Cloud Functions platform
  • ¬†Use packages to organize your functions and create reusable building blocks
  • ¬†Automate your functions using alarm events
  • ¬†Expose functions as to the web accessible endpoints and as APIs that return different content types
  • ¬†Navigate the web user interface to perform similar tasks that mirror CLI commands
