AWS re:Invent 2015 | (CMP407) Lambda as Cron: Scheduling Invocations in AWS Lambda

Published on Oct 09, 2015

Learn more about AWS: http://amzn.to/1LE1Tgv Do you need to run an AWS Lambda function on a schedule, without an event to trigger the invocation? This session shows how to use an Amazon CloudWatch metric and CloudWatch alarms, Amazon SNS, and Lambda so that Lambda triggers itself every minute—no external services required! From here, other Lambda jobs can be scheduled in crontab-like format, giving minute-level resolution to your Lambda scheduled tasks. During the session, we build this functionality up from scratch with a Lambda function, CloudWatch metric and alarms, sample triggers, and tasks.
