How to Deploy Static Feedback with 100% Serverless Architecture AWS

The serverless architecture AWS approach lets you build as well as deploy the applications and services with the infrastructure resources with zero administration. 

As the application can operate on the servers, the tasks that are relevant to the server management are taken care of by AWS. It means there is no need to handle tasks such as scaling, provisioning, and maintaining the servers to run the applications, storage, and database systems.  In this blog article, we will demonstrate how we can deploy a serverless architecture AWS in the Amazon web services to create static web pages. 

This tutorial is intended for cloud architects and cloud developers as well as those who want to pursue an AWS Certified Developer Associate


An Overview of Serverless Architecture AWS

Serverless architecture AWS offers a revolutionary approach to application development and deployment. With AWS Lambda at its core, this paradigm eliminates the need for traditional servers, allowing you to focus solely on your code. By leveraging serverless computing, you can achieve unparalleled scalability, cost-efficiency, and agility for your applications.

Serverless AWS empowers developers to respond rapidly to changing demands while reducing operational overhead. Whether you’re building APIs, processing data, or deploying web applications, serverless architecture AWS simplifies the process. Embrace the future of cloud computing with AWS and unleash the full potential of serverless technology.

What are the prerequisites for deployment activity?

While initiating the deployment activity, it is essential to meet the following requirements:

  5. Once the API is deployed, make a note of the Invoke URL for the /submit method. You can find this URL by navigating to the staging > /submit > POST.

Step 11: Modify the index.html Page

  • Open the contents of the Whiz_App in any text editor. You need to insert the API Gateway endpoint URL you noted down previously into Line 64 of the index.html file.
  • Save the file to update it and then upload the updated index.html to the static web page hosting S3 bucket.
  • Navigate to Amazon S3 by clicking on the “Services” menu, under the “Storage” section, and select your static web page hosting bucket.
  • Click on the “upload” button and upload the updated index.html page to the bucket.


Step 12: Testing the Web Page Now

You can test the web page using the CloudFront domain name. Follow these steps:

  1. On the web page, fill in the details in the form:
  1. Click on the “Submit” button.
  2. You should see a submission message at the top of the web page, indicating whether the form submission was successful or not.
  3. Next, navigate to the DynamoDB table to check if the submitted form’s details are recorded.
  4. Verify that the entry has been made in the DynamoDB table.
  5. Finally, go to the S3 bucket that was created to confirm whether the uploaded image is present.
