What you’ll learn
- Understand what AWS Lambda functions are used for and how to use them
- Basics of Python
- Boto3 Library: a Python Library for Programming AWS
- Automating notifications, cost-ops, tests and policies using AWS Lambda
The use of AWS Lambda Functions with Python and the Boto3 library are one of the most underutilized services that AWS offers and, when combined, are an AWS practitioner’s dream tool. We’ve designed this course for users wanting to gain proficiency without spending so much time on lecture material that they have to go back and constantly review before going forward because the information is so dense.
This course will cover all you need to know to actually start using AWS Lambda to develop your own maintainence, operations and development tasks in AWS. You’ll learn how to set up and automate tasks that would therwise take a lot of time to do even using the AWS CLI or custom scripts.
Boto3 is a Python based library written for the express purpose of interactive with AWS and, as such, has built-in classes and methods for interacting with virtually every AWS service that exists. AWS Lambda Functions with Python and Boto3 will also give you flexibility and many more options to program complex automation all in one place without the need to use many different tools.
We’re excited about this topic and know that once you see what AWS lambda can do for you that you will wonder how you ever did without it.
