Javascript on AWS Lambda - How to use Node.js in a serverless architecture

1 rating

Reduce the time it takes to get up to speed with Lambda from weeks to an afternoon. This technical manual shows you everything you need to successfully develop and deploy AWS Lambda functions written in Javascript. It covers all necessary topics in one place, complete with code examples and linked projects.

The AWS documentation pages are a great place to learn about services, but they are also filled with things that are not relevant, making it hard to get the big picture.

This book has all the important parts, based on experience and a lot of trial-and-error. You'll know everything you need in a fraction of time. No fluff or filler text, but plenty of hands-on examples.


  • Understand how the Lambda execution environment works
  • Learn how to write Javascript serverless functions
  • And walk away with knowledge about debuggers and HTTP APIs

I'm an AWS certified security specialist and architect and I've been working with cloud environments for several years now. I've been writing about these topics since 2014 on my blog at My articles are characterized by the depth of research and the to-the-point writing style.

Who is this book for?

Software developers who are familiar with Javascript and have some experience with the AWS cloud. The infrastructure examples are in Terraform, so it's nice to have some prior knowledge of that too.
