Developers and project managers who work on serverless application projects can utilize various open-source serverless frameworks to optimize development and deployment tasks. Use this course to recognize frameworks for serverless app development and deployment as well as monitoring, troubleshooting, and fine-tuning application performance. Investigate the prominent tools that help improve development workflows and monitor and debug serverless applications. Explore the critical metrics to identify serverless application performance and the recommended serverless performance and optimization strategies. Then, learn how to configure Sentry to monitor serverless applications. Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to use several tools, including AWS Chalice, Claudia.js, OpenFaaS, and OpenLambda, to improve the development, deployment, performance, monitoring, and debugging of serverless applications.
