GO on AWS - Coding, Serverless and Infrastructure as Code
What you'll learn
- Coding in GOlang
- Using GO for AWS serverless projects
- Doing Infrastructure as Code with GO on AWS
- Using Test Driven Devolpment for GO applications and AWS infrastructure
- Basic AWS Know How, Knowledge in at least one other programming language
AWS supports many programming languages with SDKs. GO is a powerful language, but what is lacking is a complete reference not only for writing applications, such as AWS Lamba Functions, but also for Infrastructure as Code. Starting with basic programming knowledge, you get expert tips from real-world projects on how to build fast, secure and cost-effective applications with GO on AWS.
We begin with GO fundamentals with many hints for a student from other languages. Building on that knowledge, we discover the possibilities of the AWS SDK - the software development kit. How to call services on a basic and more abstract level.
To build projects on AWS, you also need infrastructure like a storage bucket or a Lambda function. Modern infrastructure is built with IaC - infrastructure as code. We explore the AWS CDK - the cloud development kit. With GO, you gain speed an another level of type safety.
Now that we have learned all the building blocks, it’s time to look at more complex architectures. We discuss container and serverless applications, and both build with GO.
The chapter about different types of the automated test give you insights into building applications with high programming quality.
All that is waiting for you, so let`s GO!
