Building and Deploying Lambdas from a Docker Conta

Keith Gregory

In my last post, I used a Lambda Container Image to package my Lambda with OS-dependent libraries. I was happy with how easy it was to build and deploy the container, but unhappy with how “first start” initialization time added over a second to my Lambda’s execution time. In this post, I take a different path, and show how the pre-built AWS images can simplify building a “traditional” (deployed as a ZIP file) Lambda

Learning Lambda is an ongoing series of articles that give you a deep dive into programming on the AWS Lambda Platform. We start from first principles, and we explain what is going on in the Lambda environment as we proceed. 9 parts of Learning Lambda have currently been written.

AWS Lambda Versioning and Aliases

Linux Academy

The course has three new sections (and Lambda Versioning and Aliases plays an important part in the Lambda section): Deployment Pipelines. AWS Lambda, and. AWS Lambda and Serverless Concepts. AWS Lambda is often used to work closely with CloudFormation as kind of a utility knife that can be used to perform tasks that are just not available out of the box with CloudFormation. In these cases, you provide your Lambda Functions to AWS and they worry about the rest.

Now for a sneak preview into one of the 25 new lessons already added to the course, let’s talk about AWS Lambda and specifically using AWS SQS as an Event Source for Lambda ( see the full lesson here ). Lambda is an event-driven service and can be triggered by any number of events from many different Event Sources. Using AWS SQS as an Event Source for Lambda. This way you can verify proper configuration of SQS as your Lambda Event Source.

Serverless is more than AWS Lambda

Stackery

Too often serverless is equated with just AWS Lambda. Yes, it’s true: Amazon Web Services (AWS) helped to pioneer what is commonly referred to as serverless today with AWS Lambda, which was first announced back in 2015. Lambda is just one component of a modern serverless stack.

Scheduling Amazon DynamoDB Backups with Lambda, Python, and Boto3

Linux Academy

A simple way to achieve this is to use an Amazon CloudWatch Events rule to trigger an AWS Lambda function daily. In this hands-on AWS lab, you will write a Lambda function in Python using the Boto3 library. Setting this up requires configuring an IAM role, setting a CloudWatch rule, and creating a Lambda function. All Lambda functions require an IAM role that defines the permissions granted to it. This is referred to as the Lambda function’s Execution Role.

Running Lambdas on your Laptop

Stackery

Here is my response to that question in the form of a dive into how the SAM CLI and how SAM local can indeed improve your development process of Lambdas, but require more to take advantage of the entire menu of AWS serverless…. SAM Local, a component of the SAM CLI tools, lets you run your Lambdas and API gateways locally, giving you a local URL to send requests to your Lambdas and inspect the responses. How does SAM CLI run a local version of a Lambda?

AWS Lambda Pricing: Low, But Unpredictable

Benchmarking AWS Lambda runtimes in 2019 (part I)

The Agile Monkey

Have you ever wondered whether your AWS Lambda could be faster if you used a different runtime? AWS Lambda allows us to execute code in the cloud without needing to provision anything. As an addition to all the available runtimes in AWS Lambda, AWS announced Custom Runtimes at Re:Invent 2018. After reading two great articles on this topic , we wanted to see how things had evolved in AWS Lambda, so we performed similar tests, while adding a few more runtimes to the benchmark.
