Interesting content 🚀
Aravind V writes about the combination of two dev tools - AWS SAM CLI and AWS CDK for development and testing locally in his blog post 🐋 AWS CDK 101 - 🦋 SAM local to test and debug lambda function where he walks through how to setup SAM CLI on a CDK project and locally tests with
sam invoke local.
Josh Armitage shares the need of testing our applications, specifically Serverless apps in his blog-post Serverless Testing, Local Considered Harmful? It talks about the different paradigms which need to be considered and the tools which can help you test better in production and development.
Allen Helton sheds light on how to succeed with AWS Step Functions with a blog-post Success With Step Functions - Finding a Way To Build That Doesn’t Suck which talks about the pain points of Step Functions having a not-so-great Developer Experience but the service itself is so fantastic that we always find workarounds to adapt State Machines for our productions workflows.
