This lesson provides the student with a walkthrough on configuring and deploying a Lambda Function. A Lambda function is created from the AWS Management Console and all of its components are examined. The Lambda Funnction, which is an AWS sample function, is then deployed and run several times to examine the runtime operation of the function. AWS CloudWatch, which records runtime information for Lambda, is also examined.
Update: Lambda now has a function timeout of 15 minutes. For the latest on Lambda limits, see: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/lambda/latest/dg/limits.html
