Welcome to this Learning Activity for creating a Lambda function using the AWS CLI This activity provides some hands-on experience with creating and customizing Lambda functions, all from within the CLI. The primary focus will be on these AWS features: 1. Lambda 2. AWS CLI 3. CloudWatch Function Log Streams AWS Lambda allows you to create functions and only have to worry about managing your code. Using the CLI allows you to "ditch the clicks," all of those mouse gestures required when you create a function within the console. CLI FTW!
