I highly recommend working through the examples in the book as opposed to merely reading them. I was able to confidently work the examples and produce working code just fine. Peter S. seems to have taken great pains in adding lots of detail in the form of screenshots and code snippets. This helped me breeze through both code and configuration (something you get to do a lot more of in the Serverless world). The only caveat for being so rich in detail is that web UI's, command line interfaces, and other such things can change over time and some of the book's details may quickly take on a subtly different form. I encountered a few discrepancies myself, but nothing was tear-your-hair-out bad.
I'm very glad I read the book, and I hope to make it out to Peter's ServerlessConf sometime in the near future. Looking forward to more great insights!
In my opinion however, there are two major shortcomings in the book that made me drop a star.
1. All of the code, examples and setup instructions are only node.js centric. It would have been nice to have the code in at least one other language.
If it helps, I have written and hosted all of the code from the book in Java on github. User: shalabh-jaiswal , Repo: serverless-video-transcoder. github.com/shalabh-jaiswal
2. The book should have stuck to the AWS platform, using Cognito and DynamoDB instead of Auth0 and Firebase. After all, the title of the book reads: “… on AWS”
Having said that, this book will definitely help anyone looking to delve into AWS Serverless technologies.
