AWS Lambda and automated testing (pt2).

Opps; forgot to circle back to this…

So we finally got it working. Local and Jenkins automated testing that couples with Lambda for media processing! What we ended up doing was creating an ssh tunnel from our DEV to UAT, from UAT to the remote DEV DB. O man was it slow. Like, slow enough we dumped it after 3 days. Do not recommend this type of setup if you can at all help it.

The next week this repo bust out on the scene; would have saved us a a lot of headache: https://github.com/atlassian/localstack. Unfortunately we were past the point where it would have helped instead of hurt the engineering pipeline.
