Using Serverless and SAM to deploy a Scheduled Lambda with Packages. Building and deploying a scheduled AWS Lambda with external platform-dependent packages using AWS SAM and Serverless
There are several ways you can deploy a Lambda function, and the most common way is to simply write your code within the IDE, test, save, then deploy. You may also require it to run at a certain time, again, more point and clicks for Cloudwatch Events. This does not abide by best practice, ease of management such as undoing changes, version control, and code reusability.
Nevertheless, managing and provisioning cloud resources have become a lot easier these days due to the availability of many open-source tools that allows you to define and configure your resources by using a human-readable configuration file such as YAML. Amongst these, AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) and Serverless, are some of the best frameworks to use to Deploy your Lambda as a dependency, and as an IaC.
Design view of a Cron-scheduled Lambda
Working with many Data Scientists and one of the issues that we often face are notebooks running when they aren’t in use after hours. In this article, I will demonstrate how to use SAM and Serverless to deploy a cron-scheduled Lambda with external dependencies, to suspend SageMaker Notebooks.
Guide to Python Programming Language
Python is an interpreted, high-level, powerful general-purpose programming language. You may ask, Python’s a snake right? and Why is this programming language named after it?
A guide on how to build Python Packages for AWS Lambda Layers using Docker containers. When I first heard about AWS Lambda I was quite confused about what it was and tried to use it to train a simple ML model but was hit with a hard 5 minutes execution limit. Fast-forward a few years, I believe Lambda has evolved a lot and so have people’s understanding of event-driven systems and serverless compute. It has become part of many modern applications and data architects.
