Schedule AWS Lambda Invocations: How to Build Slow Schedulers


We take a look at how to design schedulers for infrequent tasks which are planned days, weeks, months or even years in advance. We borrow concepts from operating system schedulers and adapt them to the serverless world to efficiently schedule AWS Lambda invocations ahead of time.

In an operating system an efficient scheduler can jump between tasks in nanoseconds. But as the title says that is not always necessary. Today, instead, we will take
