With this release, Amplify CLI makes it easy to create Lambda functions running on Java, Go, .NET and Python runtimes with sample code and a guided creation, update and deployment process. Refer to a full guide for how to create functions with the new runtimes in our documentation.

In addition, Amplify CLI can schedule recurring Lambda functions to execute periodically (e.g every minute, hourly, daily, monthly or yearly basis). You can also use custom AWS cron expressions to describe more complex schedules such as “10:15 AM on the last Friday of every month”. Read our blog post to learn how to add recurring Lambda functions to your app backend. 

To get started, install the Amplify CLI and run amplify add function.
