While working at InRhythm, we held a series of workshops in December 2022. As part of that, I put together a workshop segment on writing Java-based AWS Lambdas. A few weeks later, I took portions of that workshop and assembled a Lightning Talk on using Java + AWS Lambdas and Layers.
According to Amazon, “Lambda layers provide a convenient way to package libraries and other dependencies that you can use with your Lambda functions.” I demonstrate one way to utilize this in my Lightning Talk below.
The source code used in the video can be found in the following repositories:
