Usability of AWS Lambda is high level. DevOps engineers who rely on this programs provide really good outcomes. The product is well placed and allows us to save money for projects. The interface is handy; after reading documentation carefully, any developers will be able to start use AWS Lambda quick and easy.

There's no need to manage server/architecture, and it's easy to set up and run the code. It is functional as a service. It supports different languages, such as Python, Java, Node.js, and Go.

There are a few gotchas with Lambdas. But overall, the usability is great. Once you understand that it's just the ability to run your code in the cloud, and don't think of it in terms of traditional servers/services. It's very easy to pick up, and basically everything boils down to a function. It takes an input and gives an output.

Due to the strong community around Lambdas, AWS Lambda is extremely useable. There are thousands of tutorials online to help build lambdas in any language people are interested in using. Also, the ability to deploy from version control repositories and use AWS alerting and logging infrastructure helps to get going quickly.

I give it a seven is usability because it's AWS. Their UI's are always clunkier than the competition and their documentation is rather cumbersome. There's SO MUCH to dig through and it's a gamble if you actually end up finding the corresponding info if it will actually help. Like I said before, going to google with a specific problem is likely a better route because AWS is quite ubiquitous and chances are you're not the first to encounter the problem. That being said, using SAM (Serverless application model) and it's SAM Local environment makes running local instances of your Lambdas in dev environments painless and quite fun. Using Nodejs + Lambda + SAM Local + VS Code debugger = AWESOME.

It is very easy to get started with AWS Lambda and create your first function. The user interface makes it easy to add AWS services to be inputs or outputs to the function, meaning it can be configured in many different ways for different needs. This makes it ideal for various scenarios in AWS.

AWS Lambda Overall it's a great tool and is best in class. The only caveat is that you are tied to AWS. The more of your service layer that you implement, the more you're tied to them. Being able to deploy quickly, test and experiment make it leaps and bounds ahead of its time.

The usability of Lambda itself is about on par with the rest of AWS's offerings—unintuitive UI, lots of configuration, etc. But when combined with higher-level abstractions and tools, it shines as a simple, default deployment destinations for our serverless applications. Since it's so well-supported by tooling, it's the easiest way to get started building applications in this way.

Good user experience but it’s limited to AWS propriety development flow and better integration with community tools like OpenFaaS would improve the development story.

What is AWS Lambda?

AWS Lambda is a serverless computing platform that lets developers run code without provisioning or managing servers. With Lambda, users can run code for virtually any type of app or backend service—all with zero administration. It takes care of requirements to run and scale code with high availability. Users pay only for the compute time they consume—there is no charge when their code is not running.

Developers uploading to Lambda don’t have to deal with their code’s environment. It’s a “serverless” service which lets outside code or events invoke functions. Lambda doesn’t store data, but it allows access to other services which do. Users can set up their code to automatically trigger from other AWS services or call it directly from any web or mobile app.
