Using Numba with AWS Lambda
Ryan Hotovy

This is a great example of including native(-ish) code in Lambda! I’ve got a couple of comments.

First, there’s an official Docker image for Amazon Linux, and the Lambda team have said they’ll put a tag on it for the current version in use by Lambda.

Second, I don’t think building (or pip installing) code inside an Amazon Linux container for Lambda is a hack at all! In fact, it should probably be a common tactic for mature teams, as you never know when a Python package will have native requirements. Similarly, having a base Docker image that’s Amazon Linux with LLVM seems pretty useful too!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
