Cloud functions have been taking the industry by storm. Always available, scale transparently, only pay for the compute you use (100% utilization) and deploy instantly with zero downtime. However, getting started is fraught with complexity and configuration. In this workshop you will quickly learn all the angles of 'serverless' technology using Amazon Web Services:

- A Brief Introduction to Amazon Web Services
- Introduction to JSF Architect
- Intro Web Dev: HTML and JSON with API Gateway
- Intro Web Dev: Custom Domains with Route53 DNS
