In this short video we go over the benefits of using serverless features like AWS Lambda and why they're crucial for cloud and developers alike.
Now that you know why serverless is not only great to learn, but great to use, it's time to start seeing how Lambda works! You'll take a look at how to create a Lambda function using both the AWS console and Pythons AWS library, Boto3.
Handlers in Lambda functions are probably the trickiest thing to grasp when you're just getting started. In this short lecture, we talk about what Lambda handlers are and why they're crucial.
If you're a cloud engineer or a cloud developer, you'll need to automate certain aspects of your workflow to make your life easier. AWS Lambda is perfect for something like starting an EC2 instance or interacting with other AWS services.
Understanding how to use Lambda as a serverless "host" for your web applications is something crucial when learning Lambda. It provides you the knowledge of knowing not only how to host a web app, but how to interact with a web app running in a serverless fashion.
Without monitoring, you're playing a dangerous game. A good monitoring solution is the difference between knowing if an application is running and waking up at 200 AM to fix an application that no one can access.
