AWS Lambda is a compute service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. AWS Lambda executes your code only when needed and scales automatically, from a few requests per day to thousands per second. You pay only for the compute time you consume - there is no charge when your code is not running. With AWS Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service - all with zero administration.

In this lab you will learn how to use the AWS console to configure and deploy AWS Lambda functions. You will be provided login information for the AWS console and then proceed to use pre-written function code to configure and deploy the first two functions of our application.

To complete this lab, go to for the pre-written code.

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.
