A New Hope

Trying to figure out serverless has been fruitless in the last few weeks. I’ve asked Mr. Navkal and fellow Energize Andover members about my issue, but we haven’t found any success.

Today, I researched some alternatives for deploying code. Zappa is a Python specific tool for building and deploying event-drive software on AWS Lambda. However, it’s less popular than serverless. Flask-Ask is a framework that makes it easier to develop Skills with Python. I found this guide for getting started with it. Also, I found this guide for using it in conjunction with Zappa.

I decided on using the Flask-Ask + Zappa guide for this project. It should spare me some headache, hopefully.
