Testing locally is almost impossible, then you need to create things in aws for local development, this is very bad!

If you're using serverless framework, check out serverless-offline npm package. There are other packages like this which can emulate DynamoDB too. It's not perfect, but that's the closest you can get to it at this point I think.

Or you can use a docker based, open source serverless framework such as Fn Project that you can run on any cloud (or your laptop), so you can test locally, and deploy wherever you like.
