Building Test Automation for AWS Lambda Serverless Computing Platform

AWS Lambda is an event-driven, serverless computing platform provided by Amazon as a part of the Amazon Web Services. It is a computing service that runs code in response to events and automatically manages the computing resources required by that code.

During this discussion we will look at building test automation for AWS Lambda Functions. We will explore testing Lambda Functions locally and inside the AWS environment on a deployed Lambda Function. We will look at testing standard Lambda Functions and HTTPS endpoints.

Session Takeaways:

• Overview of AWS Lambda serverless computing platform
• Building Regression Tests for Lambda functions
