A serverless application is a combination of AWS Lambda functions, event sources, and other resources that work together to perform tasks.
Serverless Framework lets you define how to handle a serverless application by writing a config file in YAML, a human-readable data serialization language. It also provides a hosted dashboard, which further simplifies these processes and enables you to monitor your serverless applications.
In this webinar, we’ll show you how to use the Serverless Framework to develop and test a sample serverless application. We also show you how to use CircleCI to implement continuous integration and deployment of that serverless application.
CircleCI has released an aws-serverless-framework orb to make it easier to continuously integrate and deploy serverless applications built using the Serverless Framework.
An orb is a sharable package of continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) configurations that is easy to use and makes the software delivery faster and less error prone.
