“Writing AWS Lambda Functions in Rust”

December 29, 2019   /   ~7 minute read

I have recently started digging deeper into Amazon Web Services (AWS), and particularly into serverless lambda functions. After a few successful experiments with Python, I started wondering how hard it would be to get this stack running with Rust. Turns out, it wasn’t too hard after I had overcome a few of the initial hurdles which mostly consisted of figuring out how the different parts work together under the hood. This article is intended to serve as a guide on how to write serverless AWS lambda functions in Rust and how to deploy them onto Amazon Web Services.
