AWS Lambda - does it involve just coding?

I am not aware of AWS except that it is a cloud platform for hosting applications.

Do we need to have only coding skills to develop applications using AWS lambda, or do we need some networking or configuration skills to host an application using AWS Lambda?


Sorry if the question looks very silly.

No question is silly, only answers can be ;)

AWS is a broad platform of computing, networking, storage, and AWS Lambda is a service that allows you to create applications without being a cloud expert, you just need to know one of the programming platforms supported by the service (currently Node.js, Python, Java/JVM, C#) and you can write functions that executed on demand (directly or via a Web API), or triggered by events (for example, a mobile app uploads a picture and you can trigger a function to process that).

Using multiple functions together, you can build the backend of a web, mobile or IoT application. You may give a look at the first chapter of my book, it is free to read and gives an overview of what you can do, and how to do it. In the book, I focus on JavaScript/Node.js, with most examples also provide din Python.
