How are you using AWS Lambda?

  • Used Lambda to import content from excel sheets/files to the database. Our main application was written in Node.js, reading excel file with Node was a bit time consuming, so I had to use python with pandas to achieve this task. The python function that does this task was deployed to Lambda, and it was invoked from the Node.js application.
  • Used to take screenshots of multiple graphs/charts and later upload it to the AWS S3.
  • Used to convert the LateX equation to the png or jpg file.
