AWS Lambda is a serverless, event-driven compute service, meaning that it allows you to execute code when a specific event occurs, and abstracts the burden of maintaining infrastructure from you, the developer. Lambda functions are extremely powerful, but generally best-suited for lightweight interactive applications. Explore serverless computing and the benefits of AWS Lambdas. Discover the AWS Lambda dashboard and deploy a lambda function using Python runtime. Practice using blueprints and investigate the role of AWS Identity and Access Management in the successful outcome of a lambda function. Finally, configure a new REST API trigger through the API gateway service and expose that REST API using the curl utility. When this course is completed, you will recognize the roles and policies required for a lambda to run, and be able to create, deploy, and test lambda functions.
