AWS Lambda allows us to create functions and just worry about managing our code, while AWS handles the underlying infrastructure. In this hands-on lab, we will create an alarm that notifies us via AWS SNS when a Lambda function invocation fails.

We'll be working with the following features of AWS Lambda:

  • Lambda Console
  • Function Code
  • Execution Roles
  • CloudWatch Alarms
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.
