Last week I was playing around with writing some custom Slack slashcommands and cronjobs. Originally, I started writing these integrations with PHP. Since slack requires a publically available endpoint and I did not want to set up a server for these scripts, I decided to take a look at AWS Lambda. This Amazon service makes it possible to run scripts serverless. The scripts are triggered based on triggers inside of AWS. In this artile you can find out how to get started with writing lambda functions.
