AWS Lambda in Action is an example-driven tutorial that teaches you how to build applications that use an event-driven approach on the back end. Starting with an overview of AWS Lambda, the audiobook moves on to show you common examples and patterns you can use to call Lambda functions from a web page or a mobile app.
The second part of the audiobook puts these smaller examples together to build larger applications. By the end, you'll be ready to create applications that take advantage of the high availability, security, performance, and scalability of AWS.
With AWS Lambda, you write your code and upload it to the AWS cloud. AWS Lambda responds to the events triggered by your application or your users and automatically manages the underlying computer resources for you. Your application is divided into small functions, leading naturally to a reactive architecture and the adoption of microservices.
- Create a simple API
- Create an event-driven media-sharing application
- Secure access to your application in the cloud
- Use functions from different clients like web pages or mobile apps
- Connect your application with external services

Unfortunately no adoption to audio format.
Where the book itself is okay and the readers voice and pronunciation are great, there is no adoption to the audio format. What does it help to hear "see this link and that link", "see listing 27" or "see figure 53a"? Or why not give the right answer of the little quizzes right after reading the options for answers instead of at the end as "1c, 2 a and d, 3 b". Books to sell in audio format should be more wisely selected; e.g. to give overviewa about technologies or explain what can be done with technologyies, the reason behind architectural decisions and what to consider in decisions, but not implementation details.
So why did I give it a try anyways? Because I was hoping to get some overview about this technology while walking from and to work. It did not work out well.
