"To infinity and beyond" - Serverless scaling with AWS Lambda

"Running automated tests in CI systems has become a common practice.
Luckily, the structure of CI systems allow us to run tests on multiple runners in parallel and reduce the execution time.
But are there ways to scale to infinity - without having an army of runners?
Say hello AWS Lambda - a serverless event-driven compute service."

"We know that quick feedback of automated tests is often essential.
Once we start a test run, we don't want to wait for hours.

While browsing through the AWS products, I found a product called Lambda.
“[...] a serverless, event-driven compute service that lets you run code for virtually any type of application [...] without provisioning or managing servers.”
Running code without servers?
What would happen if that “code” was actually Robot Framework?
And what would happen if I split my planned test into very small pieces during execution and run those tiny pieces at same time? Maybe all test suites at once? Or maybe..all tests at once?
Let's talk about how to set up AWS Lambda for Robot Framework, look into it's possibilities and limitations."

I'm a QA Engineer at DB Schenker and like to help projects getting started with their Test Automation journey. And most of the times, it involves Robot Framework.
I love the dicussions Slack channel with the community about Robot Framework and its ecosystem and I'm always impressed with the detailed information and help I get there.
In my freetime I often like to spend time with the family. If I have too much time, I grab my guitar which is catching dust or play some video games.
