Unit and Integration Testing for AWS Lambda
Ben Kehoe


first of all, VERY good stuff :), I’m developing a slightly big microservice-application in AWS with python / Lambda, and in our team we are facing in this very moment the serverless testing challenges, I’m very curious about the workflow that this placebo testing practice you described should follows. For example: you run the first time locally the “placebo-ed” lambda code using local profile or env credentials, letting the code contact the other aws services from you PC? Or maybe you perform a sort of “recording deploy” on AWS and then recover somehow the generated files? In your experience do you perform the recording often or it is a “one shot” process?

Thanks for the good pointers thought :)
