About the course

This course will explore AWS automation using Lambda and Python. We’ll be using the AWS SDK for Python, better known as Boto3.

You will learn how to integrate Lambda with many popular AWS services, such as EC2, S3, SQS, DynamoDB, and more.

Once we cover the basics, we’ll dive into some more advanced use cases to really uncover the power of Lambda.
