  • GitHub repo cdk-lambdaless-apigw-websockets

    Abusing StepFunctions so that I do not have to write any Lambda code.

    With the Amazon API Gateway direct integrations capabilities, one might create elaborate and resilient WebSocket backend without needing AWS Lambda functions. I took on that challenge myself. Here is the result.

  • GitHub repo apollo-client

    :rocket:  A fully-featured, production ready caching GraphQL client for every UI framework and GraphQL server.

    On the frontend side of things, you might encounter issues with integrating the AWS AppSync JavaScript client with one of your GraphQL client libraries. As of writing this, there is a lot of issues on GitHub related to integration with my favorite GraphQL client – the apollo-client.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo iot-core-feature-flags

    A very very simplified, hacky implementation of feature flag service using IOT Core MQTT capabilities

    I believe that AWS IoT Core MQTT could be used for real-time frontend feature toggles. Integrating your frontend with the service should be hassle-free because of the AWS Amplify plugin. Here is my attempt at building real-time frontend feature toggles with AWS IoT Core.
