Learn to Build Full-Stack Apps with Serverless and React
Serverless Stack is an open source guide for building and deploying full-stack apps using Serverless and React on AWS.
We are going to create a note taking app from scratch using React.js, AWS Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, and Cognito.
It is a single-page React app powered by a serverless CRUD API. We also cover how add user authentication and handle file uploads.
The entire guide is hosted on GitHub and we use Discourse for our comments. With the help of the community we add more detail to the guide and keep it up to date.
- Provide a free comprehensive resource
- Add more content to build on core concepts
- Keep the content accurate and up to date
- Help people resolve their issues
- If you are running into issues with a specific chapter, post in the comments for that chapter.
- Open a new issue if you've found a bug
- Or if you have a suggestion create a new topic in our forums
- If you've found a typo, edit the chapter and submit a pull request.
