📄️ Introduction and setup
In this tutorial, you will learn how to add a cache to your serverless application with AWS Lambda. To do so, you will use Momento, a cache built for deep integration with serverless applications. Momento combines instant, elastic, cache storage with a pay-for-value pricing model and blazing-fast performance.
📄️ Deploying a basic serverless application
In this step, we will deploy a basic serverless application on AWS. This service will not use caching yet -- we are going to start with the straightforward implementation of our service first. In the following steps, we will see how to improve performance of our application by adding caching with Momento.
📄️ Configuring Momento in Serverless
In the previous step, we deployed a basic serverless application using AWS Lambda, API Gateway, and DynamoDB. With this, we implemented the basics of account management within our application.
📄️ Read-aside caching with Momento
In the previous step, we installed and configured Momento within our serverless application. As part of that, we learned some important details about the Lambda lifecycle that will help with performance, particularly when making external network calls from our application.
📄️ Write-aside caching with Momento
In the previous step, we added our initial caching implementation by adding read-aside caching to our application. As part of that, we learned about different caching strategies and the factors to consider in choosing a cache strategy.
