Deep Dive on Lambda@Edge - AWS Online Tech Talks (27:37)

Today, developers have to forward requests from distributed CDN endpoints back to compute resources at their centralized servers in order to do any customized processing, slowing down the end user experience. The Lambda-based processing model allows you to write JavaScript code that runs within the growing network of AWS edge locations. In this tech talk, we provide a deep dive on the capabilities of Lambda@Edge and its use cases.
