You’ll implement a Lambda function that will be invoked each time a user requests a unicorn. The function will select a unicorn from the fleet, record the request in a DynamoDB table and then respond to the front-end application with details about the unicorn being dispatched.
The function is invoked from the browser using Amazon API Gateway. You’ll implement that connection in the next module. For this module you’ll just test your function in isolation.
❗ Ensure you’ve completed the User Management step before beginning this module.
Each of the following sections provides an implementation overview and detailed, step-by-step instructions. The overview should provide enough context for you to complete the implementation if you’re already familiar with the AWS Management Console or you want to explore the services yourself without following a walkthrough.
