# Hello World Ruby Example

Make sure `serverless` is installed. [See installation guide](../../../guide/

Once installed the Serverless CLI can be called with `serverless` or the shorthand `sls` command.

$ sls
* You can run commands with "serverless" or the shortcut "sls"
* Pass "--verbose" to this command to get in-depth plugin info
* Pass "--no-color" to disable CLI colors
* Pass "--help" after any <command> for contextual help

## 1. Create a service

sls create --template aws-ruby --path myService

Using the `create` command we can specify one of the available [templates]( For this example use aws-ruby with the `--template` or shorthand `-t` flag.

The `--path` or shorthand `-p` is the location to be created with the template service files. Change directories into this new folder.

## 2. Deploy

sls deploy

This will deploy your function to AWS Lambda based on the settings in `serverless.yml`.

## 3. Invoke deployed function

sls invoke -f hello

Invoke deployed function with command `invoke` and `--function` or shorthand `-f`.

In your terminal window you should see the response from AWS Lambda.

"statusCode": 200,
"body": "\"Go Serverless v1.0! Your function executed successfully!\""

Congrats you have deployed and ran your Hello World function!
