AWS Announcements
If you were wanted to know how you are impacting the environment by running your workloads on AWS, AWS has launched Customer Carbon footprint tool for customers to get a deeper understanding of their application’s Carbon footprint.
For iOS developers who are using Amplify SDK, Amplify has opened up the new Amplify iOS library completely rewritten in Swift.
Amazon DynamoDB has come up with increased default service quotas to simplify the user of large number of tables, so you can now have upto 2500 tables per account per region and 500 management operations per account per region. And if you are using PartiQL for a simplistic SQL based querying for your DynamoDB, the limit request option is now supported for PartiQL operations which can reduce the cost and duration of each request.
Amazon SES now supports CloudFormation templates based resource creation in multiple new regions with resource types - AWS::SES::ConfigurationSet, AWS::SES::ContactList, AWS::SES::ConfigurationSetEventDestination, AWS::SES::Template in SES available regions. Additionally, AWS::SES::ReceiptFilter, AWS::SES::ReceiptRule, AWS::SES::ReceiptRuleSet in US East (N.Virginia), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland) only.
If you are multiple accounts in your AWS Organization, you can now use the organization ID (aws:PrincipalOrgID) in the condition element of the Lambda’s resource-based policy which reduces the managerial overhead whenever there is a new account added or account deleted from your AWS Organization.
If you have Amazon Cognito for your application’s authorization and authentication, it now supports in-region integration with Amazon SES for all the email based messages and Amazon SNS for all mobile number based notifications.

Word from the author
I, Jones Zachariah Noel N aka zachjonesnoel am very pleased and honored with the love and support this newsletter is getting from the community!
If you are looking for ways to automate your IAM credential rotation, you can consider Step Functions which can help you rotate your credential and store it back on Secrets Manager, I’ve authored a blog-post about the same. With Pi Day just over with and promoting the best practices of having private S3 buckets is a good move, with that said; I’ve authored Step Functions to check if you have public S3 buckets.
I’m also happy to announce that the collaboration with Arshad Zackeriya, we officially streamed an introductory session about Lambda functions on our show β€œThe Zac’s Show - Talking AWS”
