In this lab we will learn how to create AWS Lambda functions using the AWS CLI. We will emulate a ‘local’ development environment with an EC2 instance that will be provided for you. We will create Lambda function deployment packages that we use to create functions from AWS S3 and from our ‘local’ EC2 machine.

We will also learn how to test our lambda functions using the CLI and creating test JSON events.

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.
