    6.  Deploying from AWS Serverless Application Repository
    4m 32s
    In this video, you’ll learn how to deploy serverless applications from AWS serverless application repository. You’ll see that when you publish serverless applications to AWS serverless application repository, you make it available for others to find and deploy. You’ll explore and demonstrate to deploy the same application from AWS Serverless Application Repository. You’ll first log into your AWS account, access the AWS Management Console, and launch the AWS serverless application repository homepage. FREE ACCESS

    7.  Messaging with AWS Using SNS and SQS
    12m 55s
    In this video, you’ll learn the benefits of messaging and the features afforded by Amazon SNS and SQS to implement fully managed messaging services. You’ll by looking at some of the benefits afforded with the implementation of messaging using the messaging services provided by AWS. AWS provides messaging services that enable different software systems and end devices to communicate and exchange information. These systems and devices use different programming languages and are on different platforms. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Implementing Fanout Messaging Using SNS and SQS
    11m
    In this video, you’ll learn how to implement Fanout Messaging using Amazon Simple Notification Service and Amazon Simple Queue Service. In message-oriented middleware solutions, fanout is a messaging pattern used to model information exchange that delivers a message to one or multiple destinations in parallel without having to wait for a response to that message. You’ll learn how to implement a fanout messaging scenario where you’ll push messages to multiple subscribers. FREE ACCESS

    9.  Implementing Message Filtering Pattern Using SNS
    15m 20s
    In this video, you’ll learn how to implement message filtering patterns using Amazon Simple Notification Service. An SNS topic subscriber receives every message that is being published to the topic. But a filter policy can be applied to the topic subscription to send a subset of the messages to certain subscribers or ignore them altogether. A filter policy is a simple JSON object containing attributes that define which messages the subscriber receives. FREE ACCESS
