Building a 100% Serverless Blog Site Application with the Right Observability

In the workshop, at first, we will build blog post handling and processing parts of a blog site application from scratch step by step on AWS Lambda. Applications will be interacted and pipelined with each other through AWS services like API Gateway, SQS, SNS, DynamoDB and many others. We will grasp the importance of observability in distributed serverless applications and learn how to monitor this application s with CloudWatch, X-Ray, and Thundra.



  • Understanding the internals and capabilities of AWS components in a serverless architecture.
  • Understanding of why observability is crucial for your application
  • The ways of gaining observability with cloud provided solutions and with Thundra


The attendees will need to have an AWS Account, Node.js installed in the account. Development familiarity with serverless is beneficial.
