An introduction to AWS Lambda

by Phil Hunt / Rabea Gleissner

Phil, a Senior Engineer at Tes, gave a great introduction to AWS Lambdas during our weekly knowledge sharing session. These hour long sessions are meant for Tes Engineers only, but this session contained a lot of useful information that I’m sure is relevant for people outside of Tes as well.

In his talk, Phil gives a brief introduction to AWS Lambdas and shows some use cases. He also goes into the pros and cons of Lambdas and how we use them at Tes. At the end he gives a live demo of creating a Lambda function in Node.js.

So if you want to learn some basics about serverless computing and are interested in how we take advantage of this technology at Tes, check out the video recording of this session.
