Tutorial: AWS API Gateway to Lambda to DynamoDB
August 5, 2015
After last week’s Internet Of Things hack session, I became fascinated with all the fun IoT projects and technologies there are to play with. Everything you do, requires data to go into the cloud, so I figured I’d start there. In the hack series I learned how to push data into AWS Kinesis which is amazing, however it has its disadvantages. On the flip side there is the new AWS API Gateway which I also haven’t spent much time on, so that’s a perfect thing to learn. After some tinkering, I found that while AWS API Gateway -> Lambda -> DynamoDB might sound complicated, it’s actually quite easy.
AWS IoT Hack Series with MediaTek LinkIt One
August 3, 2015
Last Friday I spent the day at the AWS Popup Loft San Francisco. Just like when I was there two weeks ago, it was for an all day, hands on bootcamp. However, this most recent visit was much more exciting since we were learning about the Internet Of Things, the MediaTek LinkIt One and how to use AWS to process all the data. I left filled with good times, glorious ideas of IoT, and some goodies. A friend called it “Adult summer camp”, I call it “So awesome, why haven’t you gone yet?”
