AWS recently announced support for container images for its Lambda service. I’m a fan and advocate for all things serverless so any improvements in this space are always welcome. The following paragraphs attempt to share my initial findings as well as some tips to get started with this new capability.
The first thing to point out here is that container support does not mean Lambda can run any container. Instead you have the option of using one of the AWS base images or if you’re so inclined you can roll your own Lambda compliant custom image. Functions must also follow…
In this article I want to touch on the nuances associated with client-side routing when deploying a Gatsby site behind AWS CloudFront.
CloudFront is a great choice for serving your static site not only for improving content delivery (through its network of Edge locations) but also because it allows you protect your S3 bucket content using Origin Access Identity (OAI), so its well worth the additional setup.
Once your bucket is configured as a static website AWS S3 automatically handles request redirects to the websites index document where request handling can be done by the client-side router function. …
I wanted to quickly document the process of enabling CORS when working with API Gateway’s Lambda proxy integration. Proxy integration allows you to call a Lambda function in the backend. Enabling the proxy integration removes the standard API Gateway integration response and places the responsibility of returning CORS headers in the hands of the backend service.

In this article I want to walk through the process of integrating a Stripe asynchronous subscription event with AWS EventBridge.

What about Stripe? It is a fully integrated payments platform offering a rich set of APIs, a client library available in a range of languages, webhooks and a CLI which greatly simplifies life for a developer.
There are still several moving parts to consider…
