Building a difference checker with Amazon S3 and AWS Lambda

This blog post shows how to create a scalable difference checking tool for objects stored in S3 buckets. The Lambda function is invoked when S3 writes new versions of an object to the bucket. This example also shows how to remove earlier versions of object and define a set number of versions to retain.
