AWS Lambda is a foundational service from Amazon. Serverless functions allow you to deploy applications without having to worry about the technical complexity of provisioning or managing servers. They are fast, scalable, and cost-effective. You can get started immediately without having to configure anything except the function itself.

Knowing how to use AWS Lambda to develop, update, and deploy applications will make you more effective at building out solutions using Amazon Web Services. You should also be comfortable combining AWS Lambda with other Amazon services to achieve sophisticated system architectures.

This course has been designed to provide you with hands-on experience of using AWS Lambda to configure and implement a variety of solutions, many of which will integrate with other AWS services. 

Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn in a practical fashion with hands-on labs how to:

  • Create AWS Lambda functions
