Programming Model for Authoring Lambda Functions in Go

The following sections explain how common programming patterns and core concepts apply when authoring Lambda function code in Go.

Additionally, note that AWS Lambda provides the following:

  • github.com/aws/aws-lambda-go/lambda: The implementation of the Lambda programming model for Go. This package is used by AWS Lambda to invoke your Lambda Function Handler (Go).

  • github.com/aws/aws-lambda-go/lambdacontext: Helpers for accessing execution context information from the The Context Object (Go) .

  • github.com/aws/aws-lambda-go/events: This library provides type definitions for common event source integrations.
