About Lab


AWS Lambda is a serverless computing service provided where users can create functions, self-contained applications written in one of the supported languages and runtimes, and upload them to AWS Lambda, which executes those functions in an efficient and flexible manner.
The Lambda functions can perform any kind of computing task, from serving web pages and processing streams of data to calling APIs and integrating with other AWS services.

This Lab guides you on how to create and test Lambda functions based on triggers. Also, you will understand how to see output of functions in Amazon CloudWatch. When you start the lab, you will see one S3 bucket already created by Qwikskills to help you get started with the concepts. You have seen in one of the previous labs on how to create an S3 bucket.
