In this AWS hands-on Lab, the student will learn to work with Lambda functions and create function versions and aliases from the Command Line Interface. The student will first use the CLI to create a Lambda function. After the function has been created the CLI can be used to create version and aliases for the function. The key point with versions is that any new version created is immutable but the $Latest version can be changed and used to create new versions. Aliases can be pointed to the same function, different functions or moved around as needed. The student will create multiple versions from the CLI and multiple aliases and move those aliases to whatever version is necessary. While working from the CLI the AWS Management Console will be used to correlate results to what is being done from the CLI.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
