Publishing Serverless Finch

A little while ago I was working on a Serverless Framework project that needed an easy way to deploy and configure files in S3 as a static website. I didn’t want to do this manually and was hoping to keep the scope of everything within the Serverless Framework. After some back and forth I ended up republishing an outdated npm package as serverless-finch and you’re now welcome to use and contribute to it.

When I moved back to the Seattle area from Philadelphia I started riding a prominent Seattle commuter train several times a week. After the first few weeks of commuting I was surprised by how infrequently I saw Seattle ticket enforcement officers. I’ve always paid my fare (and plan to continue doing so because trains are awesome and I support public transit), but I started to wonder, if I were a perfectly rational, amoral decision maker and didn’t care about public transit would I still pay?

I’ve just released another serverlessfoo.com project - Ben Frankly: Benjamin Franklin’s Frank Opinions of You.

After reading Benjamin Franklin’s autobiography I noticed how he has a knack for memorably describing people. So I parsed through the autobiography and compiled a selection of those descriptions into another Micro-API using the Serverless Framework.

I’m thrilled to announce that my latest Pluralsight course is here!

In my new course, Using the Serverless Framework on AWS with Node.js, I’ve put together an introduction to the Serverless Framework that should be suited to anyone interested in learning more about serverless tools and technologies.

Twilio just published my article on building SMS notification applications with JavaScript and the Serverless Framework. Here’s a teaser:
