Working with Thundra in AWS SAM

AWS SAM is rapidly growing in popularity. It’s a powerful tool for serverless development that integrates development, testing, and deployment strategies behind a comprehensive CLI, and it’s also a model of development that’s extensible and flexible. While AWS SAM does a lot to reduce configuration complexity, this doesn’t necessarily translate into greater platform observability.

Cutting Step-Functions Costs on Enterprise-Scale Workflows

AWS Step Functions is a great service for orchestrating multi-step workflows with complex logic. It’s fast to implement, relatively easy to use and just works. The problem is its price. For relatively low-scale projects, it’s a feasible solution. But for large-scale, enterprise-grade orchestration with hundreds of millions of processes, each with dozens of steps, it can be cost prohibitive.

Exposing AWS Lambda functions with the API Gateway

Amazon API Gateway is an AWS service that enables developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. You can create APIs that access AWS or other web services or resources, or data stored in the AWS Cloud. Together with AWS Lambda, API Gateway forms the key app-facing part of the AWS serverless infrastructure.


API Gateway with Lambda Examples

In this article, we will discuss common use cases of API Gateway and Lambda with actual examples. You can refer the full source code in our GitHub repository at Assuming your request had two query parameters name and age, you can access these from within your Lambda function as follows, irrespective of the APIs being REST or HTTP.
