Hi Netlify community,
I hope this is the right section
I am looking for making a tiny app for myself (handling invoices since I am a freelancer), I do not want to use existing services, I just want to try building my simple app.
I want to have SPA hosted via Netlify and on AWS I want to deploy API with Serverless Aurora (MySQL), for invoice storage I am going to use S3 and SQS for async handling of sending emails via SES.
It sound like total overkill, and indeed it is, but I want to try these technologies.
So my question is how can I connect all of that together? In Netlify Functions docs I found out that if I want to use other AWS services, I shall contact the sales team, but before that I want to do some research, so here I am asking you for advice.
Do you have experience with this kind of infrastructure, what drawbacks shall I expect etc…
Yes, I have to manage API Gateway, etc… I hope that Serverless (serverless.com) will help me with that. I was also looking at ZEIT and their tools (like now) but I haven’t found a good guide for Serverless Aurora.
Thank you for your answers
