Welcome to this Learning Activity for creating Lambda triggers via the AWS CLI toolkit! This Learning Activity provides hands-on experience with creating and customizing Lambda function triggers from the CLI. We are going to receive an EC2 Instance Change notification, and then take an EBS snapshot of the attached root volume. The primary focus will be on the following features within AWS: 1. Lambda Console 2. Lambda AWS CLI 3. Event Source Mappings 4. CloudWatch Logs 5. EC2/EBS AWS Lambda allows you to create functions and only have to worry about managing your code! It's a developers dream. Going through this live activity will allow you to gain hands-on experience managing and configuring Lambda functions from the CLI. Ditch the click!
