What we are going to build
We are going to build a Single Page Application (SPA) hosted in S3 that’s able to query a relational database using ActiveRecord and then use the AWS SDK for Ruby to work with DynamoDB. What Serverless applications lack in infrastructure they gain in complexity, but with this guide you will be able to navigate the various services and techniques required to build a complete application in AWS without servers and using Ruby!
What if you don’t want to use Ruby?
What we will cover
We are going to build a real world example, so we are going to get into quite a few services on AWS:
- Aurora Serverless
- Static Website Hosting using S3
- AWS Lambda using the Ruby Runtime
- API Gateway
- AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM)
