I built a serverless application that allows users to text kind words to those that are recovering from COVID-19.
One of the main problems for those recovering from COVID-19 is the isolation from loved ones. You can communicate through other means but this application is for those that don't already have a support network.
- Interesting Integrations
What I built

- AWS Lambda
- AWS API Gateway
- AWS DynamoDB
- AWS FIFO SQS
Link to Code
How I built it
This API was built with the Serverless framework, all tech is listed above. The front end site was built using React and Gatsby.
I was able to expand my understanding of AWS technologies while working on this project. Topics learned include:
- Creating and using API keys
- Serverless development with CircleCI
- Adding lambdas to FIFO SQS queues
- Using the Giphy API
- Improving lambda testing by isolating business logic from the handler
