Automating AWS with Lambda, Python, snd Boto3 (Advanced)

AWS is all about automating as much as possible.  There are courses on Lambda and courses on Python but there's no content out there walking through different use cases using Python + boto3 with Lambda to automate AWS management.  How to parse JSON responses in Lambda using Python.  For instance, triggering a Lambda on an S3 405 error indicating a lost object to reproduce the object.  Using Lambda to clean up unattached EBS volumes.  Lambda to automatically update your S3 endpoint policy for only buckets in your account for security.  Lambda as a custom resource used by CloudFormation for a whole host of use cases. 

 

All of these are items Enterprises are asking for and a course giving the community the tools to see these end-to-end will get them thinking about how else they can automate AWS.

    Mark - I know you love GO! Can we have a course with Automating AWS with GO before Python?

    Not sure if directly related but it would be great to follow lessons about autoscaling spot and on-demand instances with Boto.

    yes. monitoring with native aws tools is what I would love to see in this one. usage of cloud watch, cloud trail, lambda and sns - apart from config rules, trusted advisor etc, to monitor aws infrastructure and either remediate the problems automatically or notify the right parties or do both . this will be terrific
