Hello Dave

Dynamodb can really be helpful for some use cases, the API scares off a lot of devs and it isn't a good substation for an rds. It scales well with no maintenance. But if you need to write complex queries of relational data I prefer postgress or msql on rds. For config, state or otherwise effemirel data it is perfect.

I agree about the API/SDK. I made a really quick prototype around reads: github.com/kyleparisi/dyn that I may add as a follow up article. This other library is neat: github.com/SamVerschueren/dynongo.
