AWS Lambda to Amazon SNS

AWS Lambda to Amazon SNS Lab

AWS Lambda to Amazon SNS Lab

Welcome to the AWS Lambda to Amazon SNS Lab! In this lab, we will explore how to integrate AWS Lambda with Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) using Terraform. AWS Lambda is a serverless compute service that allows you to run your code without provisioning or managing servers. Amazon SNS is a fully managed messaging service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. By combining these two powerful services, you can create event-driven architectures and build scalable and resilient applications in the AWS cloud.

In this lab, we will use Terraform as our infrastructure as code toolchain. Terraform is an open-source tool that allows you to define and provision infrastructure resources in a declarative manner. With Terraform, you can easily create and manage your AWS resources, including Lambda functions and SNS topics, using a simple and consistent syntax. We will write our infrastructure code in HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language), which is a human-readable and machine-friendly language specifically designed for defining infrastructure resources. By the end of this lab, you will have a solid understanding of how to use AWS Lambda and Amazon SNS together, and how to leverage Terraform to automate the provisioning and management of your AWS resources.
