It’s no secret that since I began my cloud journey in late 2018 i’ve been intrigued by serverless computing. At work i’ve even gone as far as designing and implementing a few Azure Functions that are used in production. I thought now would be the perfect time to write a blog post on a practical use case for AWS Lambda.
What is Lambda ?
Lambda is a function as a service offering from AWS that allows you to focus on writing code and letting AWS provision and maintain the underlying technology stack that your code runs on. As of this current moment in time Lambda supports runtime versions for Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, Java, C# (.NET Core), and PowerShell (.NET Core).
