AWS Lambda for Python with "Chalice"

Chalice is a microframework for Python for AWS Lambda, similar in spirit to Flask. What does that even mean? A framework is a set of libraries and coding conventions that makes development in a specific language for a specific task easier. That usually involves making some simplifying assumptions about the task you are trying to solve, and embedding those assumptions in your code so that you don’t have to spell out quite as much detail to get a task done. »
