Lambda Layer via Modules

Lab Introduction: Lambda Layer via Modules

Welcome to the Lambda Layer via Modules lab, powered by AWS and implemented using Terraform. In this lab, you will learn how to create and manage Lambda Layers using Terraform's infrastructure as code approach. Lambda Layers are a distribution mechanism for libraries, custom runtimes, and other function dependencies. By using Lambda Layers, you can manage common code across multiple Lambda functions, making it easier to maintain and update your serverless applications.

Throughout this lab, you will work with the HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL), which is used to write infrastructure as code with Terraform. You will gain hands-on experience in creating and deploying Lambda Layers using Terraform modules, which are reusable components that allow you to encapsulate and share infrastructure configurations. By the end of this lab, you will have a solid understanding of how to leverage Terraform and AWS to manage Lambda Layers efficiently and effectively.
