Introducing Caching to a Serverless Application with CloudFront

The performance of a website or web application is perhaps the most important aspect of your site. Without good performance, people will often abandon your site regardless of what it offers. Caching has become one of the most popular and effective ways to speed up the delivery of content to users that have little patience for underperforming websites or applications. In this course, Brett McLaughlin shows you how a powerful, flexible, low-cost caching mechanism like AWS CloudFront can help you build and support performance web sites and applications. Brett demonstrates how to use CloudFront to do everything from basic caching of a static website, to fronting an API gateway with Lambda calls and providing dynamic content. Lastly, he explains how authentication and authorization figure into caching, along with more advanced next steps to explore in caching.
