STAREAST 2022 Concurrent Session : Best Practices for Testing Serverless Applications


Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 9:45am to 10:45am

Best Practices for Testing Serverless Applications


Talia will share her best practices of testing your serverless applications. Serverless technologies reduce the complexity of your applications by taking care of infrastructure and server management. The main benefits of coming here will be to learn how to overcome the challenges of testing in a serverless architecture, and how to efficiently test your Lambda functions, including unit testing, integration testing, and end-to-end testing.

After this talk, you will walk away with a gained understanding of the benefits of using the Serverless Application Model (SAM) CLI to manually test your code, and verifying your application functionality locally before deploying to the AWS Cloud. Then she'll cover how to locally test and "step-through" debug your serverless applications before uploading your application to the AWS Cloud.
