Hi Lou!
Thanks for the appreciation. :)
1) Setting up Terraform was messy at first. It required me to think through many things such as STS auth for plan and deploy, remote backend for tf state, problems with their docs!, etc.
2) Lambda was easy actually. The API Gateway was challenging as their docs are incorrect for the API Gateway configured as proxy.
3) SAM is for serverless IaC. But my aim was to use a generic approach. Terraform is valid for multiple clouds so I thought I would learn a lot from that.
4) It took me 30 hours to finish it averaging 6 hours a week for 5 weeks.
