Looking at idempotency in AWS Lambda deployments

While serverless isn’t a new thing these days, deploying AWS Lambda functions happens in a myriad of ways, with a lot of different techniques and optimizations. This talk will give a brief overview of some of them, dive into some of the more interesting ones like stripping timestamp data from archive files to make them idempotent and leveraging S3 to prevent redeploying identical code. It will end by covering some recommended best practices for deploying and also talk about big questions like “Is Terraform a good deployment tool for AWS Lambda?
