This section contains tutorials for working with AWS Lambda and TimescaleDB.


Before you begin, make sure you have completed the Analyze intraday stock data tutorial. This tutorial needs the tables and data that you set up in that tutorial.

To complete this tutorial, you need an AWS account. You also need access to the AWS command-line interface (CLI). To check if you have AWS CLI installed, use this command at the command prompt. If it is installed, the command shows the version number, like this:

aws --version
aws-cli/2.2.18 Python/3.8.8 Linux/5.10.0-1044-oem exe/x86_64.ubuntu.20 prompt/off

For more information about installing the AWS CLI, see the AWS installation instructions.
