I'm launching my own app to AWS with you setup, thanks a lot for sharing. I have one question though. Don't you need RDS when building for production ?

Hi Jose!
Thank you for checking out my guide!
Good point and I think I did not mention it but yes using either RDS or some other database service would be necessary.

For my personal project, I used ElephantSQL for a Postgres database as it was free but you are free to use whichever database works best for you!

I might do a follow-up guide on setting up a database with AWS when I have the time...
