Hi everyone, my name is Fernando Medina Corey and welcome to my aws developer course an introduction to aws lambda. I am a Data Engineer at Curalate. At work I frequently turn to Lambda to keep data pipelines flowing and providing insights to company stakeholders.

AWS Lambda is the industry leader in the Serverless Functions space. This course is a quick introduction to AWS Lambda, and Serverless functions more generally, no prior experience with AWS or Serverless functions is required.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
1. Integrating Lambda with 3rd party APIs
2. Leveraging other AWS services within Lambda
3. Using the AWS CLI to deploy our Lambda functions
4. and Knowing when Lambda is suited to our development needs
By the end this course, you’ll know how to develop and deploy your own Lambda functions.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with basic programming concepts and preferably have written some code in Python. Being familiar with bash or the command line will also be helpful.

From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Serverless Application Development with courses on:
1. The AWS API Gateway
2. Using Lambda to manage ETL workloads
3. Other AWS Introductory courses

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn AWS Lambda with the AWS Developer – An Introduction to Lambda course, here at Pluralsight.
