So Much to Learn

Reading time ~1 minute

Last week, as part of learning to process data was Lambda functions, I automated the Lambda deployment process by writing a Python script that creates an IAM role, attaches some policies, and deploys the Lambda function. I thought this was a huge improvement over doing this through the UI and a necessary step in making our product cloud native.

After some discussion about where we needed to go our team decided that while the script was a useful learning point, we needed to investigate a more comprehensive deployment technology and one of my teammates mentioned that during several conversations at re:Invent people cited CloudFormation as a deployment technology they wish they had started with from the beginning. So that’s my task this week: investigate CloudFormation and see how we can leverage it to deploy our product.
