  11.     print(event)
  12.     print(context)
  13.     return event
  15. # Code commentary:
  16. # ·         I’m importing more than I have to, but I find that I use these often when testing.
  17. # ·         Using the ‘print()’ function, I’m writing directly to CloudWatch logs.  This is very helpful for troubleshooting.
  18. # ·         Line: ‘def lambda_handler(event, context):’  is what allows you to view and manipulate the payload, which is the event.  This function also comes with a second argument ‘context’.
  19. # ·         There are many use-cases for Lambda, but I find a good first step to print both the event and context to logs and move forward from there.
