Danu on AWS Community Chats
with Aley

Aley from AWS Community Chats

RUSH CTO & Founder Danushka Abeysuriya sat down virtually with Aley Hammer from Amazon Web Services (AWS) for a Community Chat about how we approach human-centred design, awkward zoom quizzes, and how we used their products in developing the NZ COVID Tracer app.

“The combination of Dynamo, API Gateway and Lambdas allowed us to not be too concerned if an endpoint got hit really hard - which it did - for example when there was an outbreak and we saw scan rates and sign ups for the app skyrocket. It allowed us to be super efficient with our cloud resources, whenever we got one of these spikes, we and the government had the confidence to know that it would perform.”
