Lesson Summary: In this video, you will learn some of the basic concepts surrounding AWS Step Functions. You will learn how you can take advantage of the Step Functions service to orchestrate your application logic using JSON state machines instead of writing complicated application logic in a programming language. This will allow you to make efficient reusable components that are particularly useful when developer serverless applications. By the end of the video, you should feel comfortable creating your first state machine and understand many (but not all!) of the basic concepts surrounding the Step Functions service.
