Amazon API Gateway HTTP APIs enable you to create RESTful APIs with lower latency and lower cost than API Gateway REST APIs. The API Gateway team is continuing work to improve and migrate popular REST API features to HTTP APIs. We are adding two of the most requested features, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) […]
Amazon API Gateway is often used for managing access to serverless applications. Additionally, it can help developers reduce code and increase security with features like AWS WAF integration and authorizers at the API level. Because more is handled by API Gateway, developers tell us they would like to see more data points on the individual […]
Over the last year, I have been talking about “storage first” serverless patterns. With these patterns, data is stored persistently before any business logic is applied. The advantage of this pattern is increased application resiliency. By persisting the data before processing, the original data is still available, if or when errors occur. Common pattern for […]
This post explores the backend architecture of the Ask Around Me application. I compare the cost and features in deciding between REST APIs and HTTP APIs in API Gateway. I introduce geohashing and the npm library used to handle geo-location queries in DynamoDB. And I show how you can build real-time messaging into your web applications using the publish-subscribe pattern with AWS IoT Core.
In July 2015, AWS announced Amazon API Gateway. This enabled developers to build secure, scalable APIs quickly in front of a variety of different types of architectures. Since then, the API Gateway team continues to build new features and services for customers. Figure 1: API Gateway feature highlights timeline In early 2019, the team evaluated […]
