It seems like the inventors of public clouds forecasted that 2020 will leave no choice but force millions of office workers to adopt the concept of working from home overnight. Imagine how different pandemic communication would have been without cloud computing in various aspects, proving that a good crisis should never be wasted although there were no contingency plans for reference.

This blog will explain a simple use case of Amazon Translate, where you can POST an HTTP request with your input data for the Amazon Translate and upload the translated text to an S3 bucket. We will be creating a serverless project using the Sigma IDE. Apart from the Amazon Translate, it will use API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and Amazon S3 resources.

This post will show how to build a simple NodeJS application to trigger Email notifications automatically when an entry is added to a database. For this implementation, I’ll use AWS Lambda, AWS API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon SES as the AWS services and SLAppForge Sigma, the simple, browser-based IDE as the development tool.

BitBucket Pipelines enables you to create custom software development life cycle (SDLC) workflows directly in your BitBucket repository. Therefore if you are using BitBucket as the version control system of your Sigma project, you can use the Sigma CLI to configure a pipeline to automate the build and/or the deployment of your serverless application.

GitHub Actions enables you to create custom software development life cycle (SDLC) workflows directly in your GitHub repository. Therefore if you are using GitHub as the version control system of your Sigma project, you can use the Sigma CLI to configure a workflow to automate the build and/or the deployment of your serverless application.

SLAppForge Sigma is a purposely-built IDE for developing and deploying serverless applications on AWS and GCP. As you may be already aware, when you develop a project using Sigma, it provides the capability to build and deploy your project via the Sigma IDE itself without any external tools. While this being very convenient and useful, in some situations it is required to build and/or deploy projects without the Sigma IDE.

Amazon API Gateway is an AWS service that enables developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. You can create APIs that access AWS or other web services or resources, or data stored in the AWS Cloud. Together with AWS Lambda, API Gateway forms the key app-facing part of the AWS serverless infrastructure.

In some scenarios, your Lambda function might want to receive and set the HTTP level details to or from the API Gateway, and this is when you would want to enable Lambda proxy integration for your deployment. Lambda Proxy allows your Lambda functions to access the raw HTTP level request attributes.

In this article, we will discuss common use cases of API Gateway and Lambda with actual examples. You can refer the full source code in our GitHub repository at https://github.com/asankha/aws-lambda-samples Assuming your request had two query parameters name and age, you can access these from within your Lambda function as follows, irrespective of the APIs being REST or HTTP.

Slack is already the de-facto “channel” for team collaboration as well as low-to-moderate scale event monitoring and notifications. When we started working on the world’s first serverless MFT platform, we decided we should go down the Slack path for first-level monitoring; similar to how we already do it efficiently with our conventional AS2 Gateway.

This is a live and unedited recording of a complete Alexa skill development including the VUI creation in the Alexa Developer Console, and a NodeJS Lambda backend integrating with a DynamoDB database to return data. The last 2 minutes thereafter shows how subsequent code changes can be updated to the Alexa skill in less than 3 seconds, and how the Lambda function could be stepped through and debugged live while it executes on AWS. There is no software to install on your local machine, and you only need a web browser.

This is a live and unedited recording of a complete Alexa skill development including the VUI creation in the Alexa Developer Console, and a Python Lambda backend integrating with a DynamoDB database to return data. We use a stopwatch to time the effort, and including the deployment time of about a minute, we still complete everything in less than 5 minutes! The last part shows how subsequent code changes can be updated to the Alexa skill in less than 3 seconds. There is no software to install on your local machine, and you only need a web browser.

Using just a web browser you can develop Alexa skills, test them and debug them while they execute live on AWS Lambda, with the Sigma IDE. Follow through this demonstration where we create an Alexa Skill from its Voice User Interface (VUI) creation to the Lambda function development in NodeJS or Python.

A 15 minute video showing the complete process of building a simple Alexa skill using a Lambda function in Python, developed with the Sigma IDE without any other software to download or use. Sigma allows you to update the code on AWS live within about 3 seconds for each iteration - which is significantly lesser than any other IDE or local development framework. Finally drag-and-drop to develop code to integrate with DynamoDB without having to search for sample code and cut and paste them to your functions which is ineffective and error prone.
