At first glance, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can seem impenetrably complex, but it’s not so bad once you’ve found your way around it…
A Lambda is a lightweight, short-lived, event-triggered process that can run reliably whenever it is needed. AWS Lambdas are perfect for small tasks.

For this tutorial, we’ll build something a little more ambitious than the traditional “Hello world!” application, and through that I hope to demistify it a bit.
