Thanks for joining me in this learning activity. Today we are going to learn hands-on how we can leverage AWS Lambda to automate ECS deployments for us. We will look for new docker image uploads and then deploy those to an updated ECS cluster.

In this learning activity we are going to focus on the following services:

  • AWS Lambda
  • ECS
  • ECR
  • CloudWatch Events
  • CloudTrail Trails

This will provide you with some near real-world experience on how to configure Lambda to automate tasks that would otherwise be wasting your time. So let’s get started!

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.
