AWS API Gateway and SNS

Asynchronous processing with AWS API Gateway and SNS

When you want to build an asynchronous endpoint that can receive your request and process the task(s) in the background, AWS services can be used to achieve that. The technique I cover here allows for parallel asynchronous processing not just asynchronous. The two important services we need are API Gateway and SNS.

AWS API Gateway

AWS API Gateway can act as a proxy for your backend endpoints or lambda function or many AWS Services including SNS. Remember the maximum execution time cannot exceed 29 seconds.
