Step functions provide a powerful way to manage the execution of Lambda functions with a serverless pipeline. And we're not limited to running tasks sequentially. Step functions also allow us to run tasks in parallel.

In this lab, we start with an existing step function definition and update it to include parallel execution of Lambda functions that both feed into the same single Lambda function as a final step.

All the resources for this lab, including a sample audio file, can be found on GitHub:

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.
