Using AWS Lambda to run Python scripts

Slides for a lightning talk about running Python scripts from AWS Lambda.

Lambda is Amazon's new service that allows execution of Java or Node.js functions without having to deploy a full EC2 instance to run on.

Lambda is a compelling option for deploying endpoints for REST-based micro-services.

This lightning talk demonstrates how to use a Node.js wrapper to execute a Python script.

Video of this talk from the Auckland Python Users Group is available on YouTube.
