Life is about facing new challenges - Kostya Tszyu
Hi Pythonistas, a new week, a new 'bite' of Python coding! We are delighted to have Michael Herman (Real Python) back to deliver this week's challenge. Prepare to learn some useful new skills and above all have fun!
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda is an on-demand compute service that allows you to run code in response to events or HTTP requests. In other words, you can run scripts and apps without having to provision or manage servers in an infinitely-scalable environment where you pay only for usage.
Create an AWS Lambda function that is triggered by an event and then performs an action.
|Image added to S3||Image is processed|
|HTTP Request via API Gateway||HTTP Response|
|Log file added to Cloudwatch||Analyze the log|
|Scheduled event||Backing up files|
|Scheduled event||Synchronization of files|

This doc also provides you with instructions how you can submit your code to our community branch via a Pull Request (PR). We will feature your PRs in our start-of-the-week challenge review (previous editions).
Keep Calm and Code in Python!
