In this article, you’ll see how easy it is to create a serverless API backend using AWS Lambda functions & Amazon API Gateway, backed by the NoSQL DynamoDB database, by deploying a sample Lambda application. This sample also comes with a CodeBuild project & a CodePipeline to fully automate deployments. It’ll even create a Git repository for you in CodeCommit so you can simply clone the repo & start building on top of the sample.
