It's all about compute over HTTP endpoint โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป - Issue #8
By zachjonesnoel • Issue #8 • View online
Yes! Itโ€™s finally here, AWS Lambda functions can now be invoked over a HTTP endpoint directly. This has removed the dependency of having AWS API Gateway which can invoke a Lambda function, but this is also not a replacement of AWS API Gateway. In this issue, we are celebrating this announcement primarily.

Word from the author
Excited to announce that the AWS Community Builder Directory is now live. You can connect with a fellow CB and build better with AWS!
I know the Function URLs are a big announcement as it has reduced AWS API Gateway based invocation to the Lambda function, and Iโ€™ve also authored a blog-post about the feature explaining how to set it up from console and AWS SAM. And the different CORS related configurations.
There is more exciting news coming up in the next issue! Stay tuned and spread the word.
Until next time, happy building Serverless on AWS! GO SERVERLESS!!
Did you enjoy this issue?

A lot of things about AWS, Serverless and tons of content from the community which talks about best practices, architectures, new hacks and many more things!
