ITP Camp 2017

Serverless Programming Using AWS Lambda

Session Leaders: Julian Dunn

Tags: #AWS #programming #node.js #serverless

Created By: Julian Dunn

"Serverless" is a new programming paradigm that minimizes the amount of infrastructure a developer needs to own in order to deploy code. In this session, we'll spend some time learning about programming using AWS Lambda and the Serverless framework by building a chat bot you can interact with over SMS

Among other use cases, it is the backbone for voice chat interfaces using Amazon Alexa or Google Home. If you've ever been curious about how to get started making your own custom Alexa Skills, this is the workshop for you!

Please come to the workshop with a laptop on which you have installed:

  • Node.JS
  • The Serverless framework ("npm install -g serverless")
  • A text editor that you like to use (e.g. Sublime Text, Visual Studio Code, etc.)

Thanks for coming to the session. The slides are here:

Note that I deleted the API keys referenced in the 2017.txt file, so if you want to play with this example, you\'ll need to bring your own AWS and Twilio accounts.
