Ever wish you could combine the portability of containers, with the scalability of Lambda functions? Well now you can!

Recently AWS released a new way for developers to package and deploy their Lambda functions as “Container Images”. This enables us to build a Lambda with a docker image of your own creation. The benefit of this is we can now easily include dependencies along with our code in a way that is more familiar to developers. If you have used docker containers before, then this is much simpler to get started with than the other option — Lambda layers.
