Creating a serverless application from start to finish.
If you have live or visited Arizona during the summer you know that scorpion are living around you. I have personally never encountered scorpions in the 10+ years of living here. I recently purchased my first home; everything seemed perfect until the day I moved in.
While moving my personal belongings into my first home I encountered a scorpion in the living room 🦂. The next day I found another on the backyard. The next day one besides my dog's bed. My first home is infested by scorpions 😮!
Now I will admit I am weird. Any normal person would run the other direction or kill it with fire 🔥! Not me. I immediately grabbed my phone to take a picture and document my first scorpion encounter.
I figured it would be a fun project to create a serverless web application that would make documenting my scorpion encounters easier to share with friends and family. Now let's create it together!
The following are our main objectives:
- Allow users to register and login
- Post a scorpion encounter with pictures and a description
- Invite friends to follow and get notified when we post our scorpion encounters
- Allow friends to comment on our scorpion encounter
- Share our scorpion encounters on social media
We will be using the following technology stack:
- API Gateway
- AWS Lambda
- AWS Cognito
- AWS S3
- PostgreSQL database
- AWS Amplify
