Voices of COVID - Technical Overview

I recently created a project aimed at collecting the stories of people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic called Voices of COVID. This project is designed to collect audio stories from people impacted by the pandemic and make them searchable. For more about the motivation behind it you can review this post. But for now, let’s look at how it’s put together!

Using JSON Schema Validation with the AWS API Gateway

Imagine you’re writing a serverless API using AWS Lambda and API Gateway. If you want to accept JSON payloads from POST requests that contain data created by your frontend client you may end up needing to validate that data to make sure it conforms to your expectations before you process it. Let’s look at a simple way of doing this with API Gateway’s JSON Schema validation.

Sponsorship Open Forum

I’d like to start accepting sponsorship to this blog soon and I’d like your feedback. I think that accepting sponsorship will allow me to commit more to creating free educational content for everyone. If done correctly, I think it can be a win-win for everyone. But I want to make sure that you feel that way too.
