How To Create A Simple AWS Lambda Function From A Blueprint

AWS Lambda functions allow you to run code in AWS without having to provision or manage any servers. Lambda functions can be setup to be automatically triggered from other services or you can call it from a mobile or web app.

In this video, Matt will walk you through the steps to create a Lambda function from a blueprint template. Then we will create a Custom Role which will grant our custom code permissions to access the AWS resources it needs. Next, we will configure a CloudWatch Events trigger and set up a Schedule Expression to define how often this function will run. Finally, we will test the new Lambda function and look at some of the monitoring statistics that are available.
