In this video, we will go over a variety of essential Lambda concepts as well as learn how to create our own Lambda functions in the AWS Management Console. This will allow you to start developing with AWS Lambda and take advantage of its availability, fault tolerance, elasticity, and cost efficiency.
We will also learn about the handler, event triggers, event data, the context object, and logging in Amazon CloudWatch.
By the end of this lesson, you will be able to create your own simple Lambda functions in the AWS Console and feel confident that you understand the basics of Lambda and serverless compute options. You will know how to modify a Lambda function's code to take advantage of event data and the context object, and you will be able to add events to a Lambda function using the AWS Console.
