Master serverless architectures in Python and their implementation, with Zappa on three different frameworks. Key Features Scalable serverless Python web services using Django, Flask, and Pyramid. Learn Asynchronous task execution on AWS Lambda and scheduling using Zappa. Implementing Zappa in a Docker container. Book Description Serverless applications are becoming very popular these days, not just because they save developers the trouble of managing the servers, but also because they provide several other benefits such as cutting heavy costs and improving the overall performance of the application. This book will help you build serverless applications in a quick and efficient way. We begin with an introduction to AWS and the API gateway, the environment for serverless development, and Zappa. We then look at building, testing, and deploying apps in AWS with three different frameworks--Flask, Django, and Pyramid. Setting up a custom domain along with SSL certificates and configuring them with Zappa is also covered. A few advanced Zappa settings are also covered along with securing Zappa with AWS VPC. By the end of the book you will have mastered using three frameworks to build robust and cost-efficient serverless apps in Python. What you will learn Build, test, and deploy a simple web service using AWS CLI Integrate Flask-based Python applications, via AWS CLI configuration Design Rest APIs integrated with Zappa for Flask and Django Create a project in the Pyramid framework and configure it with Zappa Generate SSL Certificates using Amazon Certificate Manager Configure custom domains with AWS Route 53 Create a Docker container similar to AWS Lambda Who this book is for Python Developers who are interested in learning how to develop fast and highly scalable serverless applications in Python, will find this book useful

A practical guide for developing end-to-end serverless microservices in Python for developers, DevOps, and architects. Key Features Create a secure, cost-effective, and scalable serverless data API Use identity management and authentication for a user-specific and secure web application Go beyond traditional web hosting to explore the full range of cloud hosting options Book Description Over the last few years, there has been a massive shift from monolithic architecture to microservices, thanks to their small and independent deployments that allow increased flexibility and agile delivery. Traditionally, virtual machines and containers were the principal mediums for deploying microservices, but they involved a lot of operational effort, configuration, and maintenance. More recently, serverless computing has gained popularity due to its built-in autoscaling abilities, reduced operational costs, and increased productivity. Building Serverless Microservices in Python begins by introducing you to serverless microservice structures. You will then learn how to create your first serverless data API and test your microservice. Moving on, you'll delve into data management and work with serverless patterns. Finally, the book introduces you to the importance of securing microservices. By the end of the book, you will have gained the skills you need to combine microservices with serverless computing, making their deployment much easier thanks to the cloud provider managing the servers and capacity planning. What you will learn Discover what microservices offer above and beyond other architectures Create a serverless application with AWS Gain secure access to data and resources Run tests on your configuration and code Create a highly available serverless microservice data API Build, deploy, and run your serverless configuration and code Who this book is for If you are a developer with basic knowledge of Python and want to learn how to build, test, deploy, and secure microservices, then this book is for you. No prior knowledge of building microservices is required.
