AWS re:Invent 2015 Practical DynamoDB Working Together with AWS Lambda

Today, I’m excited to announce the Practical DynamoDB Programming in Java demo from AWS re:Invent 2015 is available on github. This project is used to demonstrate how Amazon DynamoDB can be used together with AWS Lambda to perform real-time and batch analysis of domain-specific data. Real-time analysis is performed by using DynamoDB streams as an event source of a Lambda function. Batch processing uses the parallel scan operation in DynamoDB to distribute work to Lambda.

To download the project from github, use:
git clone https://github.com/awslabs/reinvent2015-practicaldynamodb.git .

Follow the instructions in the README file and play with the demo code. You’ll see how simple it is to use the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse to upload AWS Lambda functions and invoke them with the AWS SDK for Java.
