Excellent introduction. Very concise, not a wasted word. Will save you tons of time. A 0.01 star deduction for not mentioning that when invoking a lambda function via 'API Gateway" the function will only be allowed to run for just 10 seconds( at least as of 1/15/2016)
This is a great little book to get you started with Lambda. You can get through it pretty quickly and it has the information you need to get you up and running. I found this book to be much easier to read than the AWS Lambda documentation, and it includes handy tips you won't find in the documentation.
A short and well written introduction to AWS Lambda. Helping me grasp what it is, where it could be used, where it falls short.The book uses examples written in Node.js, and tells you how to test such functions locally before spending cheap yet valuable Lambda cycles. How to set up IAM roles and policies. How to log. How to monitor. With a brief look at AWS API Gateway - as this is one event generator, which fits perfectly with AWS Lambda.
This was a nice quick intro to AWS Lambda, easily digested in a couple hours. Kudos for that!Minor downside: code samples were formatted in fixed width boxes, so lots of line wraps, which makes even simple code snippets a bit painful to read.
I've found this book very useful and well written. I haven't tried Lambda yet but after reading this book I feel I know the concepts and ideas in a very confident way.
Ive been trying to learn lambda for a couple weeks now, but its really difficult to learn best practices when 99% of the resources out there are two page opinionated blog posts about a single aspect of lambda. This book puts all of the most important info in one place and is easily read in an afternoon. The author also does a good job of being unbiased. If youre just starting with Lambda then do yourself a favor and buy this book!
If you are new to AWS Lambda then this is a good place to start. It uses Node.js so if you are planning to use a different language it will take a bit to translate the examples. Covers many different aspects of Lambda and not just for to write a Lambda function.
This book was a great intro to Lambda and I'd recommend it to anyone familiar with AWS wanting to get started with Lambda. It would have been nice if the book went into more detail on each of the event triggers.
