Deep Dive Into Lambda Layers and the Lambda Runtime API - AWS Online Tech Talks



To learn more, please visit: https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/

In November, AWS Lambda introduced Lambda Layers and the Lambda Runtime API. Layers enables you to centrally manage code and data that is shared across multiple functions and the Lambda Runtime API provides a simple interface to use any programming language or specific language version for authoring your functions. In this tech talk, you’ll learn how to use Lambda Layers to enable re-use and sharing of code, and how you can build and test Layers locally using the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM). You’ll also learn how to run any language on Lambda using the Lambda Runtime API.

Learning Objectives:
– Use Lambda Layers to enable re-use and sharing of code
– Use AWS SAM to build and test Layers locally
– Run any language on Lambda using the Runtime API

  1. I have built a lot of my own functions which I find I use over and over, things like 'getFileFromS3Bucket' or 'push'FileToS3Bucket' – I'm sure I'm not the only developer with this situation. It would be really great to be able to use something like layers to not have to re-write these functions in multiple lambdas. Superficially layers looks like a great solution but if I can't test locally then this is a really big limitation on the usefulness of layers? Am I missing something? Or is there a solution in the pipeline?
