    Scheduling Events with AWS Lambda (a.k.a. Lambda cron jobs)


    Learn how to create AWS Lambda functions that execute on a scheduled interval, much like a cron job would. In this lesson we will create a Lambda function that checks for a string of text on a website to verify the website is up and operational. The lambda function logs to CloudWatch Metrics and sends a notification email using an SNS queue if the check fails.
