"Building a full-stack serverless airline web app"

As serverless computing grows in popularity, finding how to start can be a challenge. In this talk, we picked a sample “airline ticketing" web app to demonstrate the process of building a full stack serverless application. Heitor will share tips and tricks for building your idea, creating a prototype and deploying quickly and safely in production. You’ll also learn how Vue.js applications can integrate with AWS AppSync (for GraphQL backends), Amazon API Gateway (for REST APIs), AWS Lambda functions, Amazon DynamoDB tables, Amazon Cognito (for user management), AWS Step Functions for implementing Booking using Saga pattern, using AWS Amplify to seamlessly provision and manage your cloud backend.

AWSH - "The AWS shell”

AWSH is a toolkit that makes using the AWS CLI easier.

We all know that there is power in the AWS CLI, you can find the information you need more directly and quicker. Jumping from screen to screen in the console takes longer and you don’t get to link it into the command line tools.

But, the AWS CLI is hard to set up. Identities, credentials, roles, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), SSO, Active Directory, Token management. All take time to set up.

Once you have your environment set up, it is hard to know where you are, which account you are in, which region and how long you’ve got left on your tokens.

You’d also like to have a way that powers up your queries. A way to manipulate the output and simplify running those queries that take a few AWS CLI calls and a few other CLI commands.

Enter, “AWSH - The AWS shell”. AWSH help you set up your environment, allows you see where you are at the prompt and allow you to bake your own queries. We also bundled in a few queries that we find useful.

It will be open source so all are welcome to use it and we welcome contributions from the community.
