API Gateway Websockets

API Gateway Websockets Lab

API Gateway Websockets Lab

Welcome to the API Gateway Websockets Lab, powered by AWS and Terraform. In this lab, you will learn how to leverage the power of API Gateway and Websockets to build real-time communication applications. Websockets provide a persistent connection between the client and the server, allowing for bi-directional communication and enabling real-time updates without the need for constant polling. With API Gateway Websockets, you can easily build scalable and secure applications that require real-time data streaming, such as chat applications, collaborative tools, and live dashboards.

Throughout this lab, you will use Terraform, a popular infrastructure as code tool, to provision and configure the necessary AWS resources. Terraform allows you to define your infrastructure in a declarative manner using HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language), making it easy to manage and version control your infrastructure code. By the end of this lab, you will have a solid understanding of how to set up and configure API Gateway Websockets using Terraform, and how to integrate it with other AWS services to build powerful real-time applications.
