Serverless computing is one of the most talked-about subjects among AWS customers. The AWS serverless offerings, AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway, make it possible for developers to create and run API applications with built-in, virtually unlimited scalability without managing any servers. Today the AWS Developer Tools team is excited to announce the preview of the Python Serverless Microframework for AWS. You can read Martin Fowler talking about the benefits of Serverless architecture http://martinfowler.com/articles/serverless.html#benefits

I will show you a simple way to build a “serverless” application and test it via Docker. When I refer to “serverless” I’m referring to the idea that the application is a short lived app, does its job, stops – just like AWS Lambda. I will create two applications each in their own project folders: serverless-app and serverless-web The serverless-app piece is the actual “serverless” piece of this, the web app will run as long as we want. I just gave them similar names to make it easier to keep the projects named closely but different enough to know what does what.
