How To Create An Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda Function With PowerShell

In this video we’ll learn how to setup AWS to create Lambda Functions using PowerShell. We’ll walk through the permissions needed in AWS and then walk through installing the PowerShell module and getting it setup to create Lambda Functions. Next we’ll look at creating a Python 3.6 based Lambda function that takes some simple inputs and returns a message. We’ll walk through the zip file approach to setting it up. Once we have our function created we’ll give it a test run and validate that it ran and returned the desired output via the CloudWatch Logs. This should give you a solid foundation to start working with AWS Lambda Functions going forward! Prerequisites include: AWS Account Created
