We'll run PowerShell on AWS Lambda and investigate some common use cases where a simple automation script can add intelligence and convenience to your workloads.

In this session, we'll explore some scripts you can add to your environments today, such as augmenting support conversations with ML, adding an automated text-to-speech feature for an RSS feed, sending notifications based on internal systems, and implementing a document approval process workflow.

We'll visit tools like AWS Lambda and AWS Step Functions and learn about how to schedule tasks and create workflows. All scripting will take place in PowerShell using the AWS Tools for PowerShell and PowerShell Core.

You will learn:

  • Using PowerShell to orchestrate cloud services
  • Common automation tasks
  • Best practices with PowerShell tools for AWS
