Chaining Together Lambdas: Exploring All the Different Ways to Link Serverless Functions Together

One fairly common thing people want to do with Lambdas is chain them together to build microservices and workflows. This sounds easy enough in theory, but in practice tends to be much more complex (as is the case with most things in AWS). This post will walk through a few different methods to chain Lambdas together. We'll cover how you can chain together Lambdas using only vanilla Lambda functions, using AWS Step Functions, and using our platform, Refinery.

Since a good number of our customers use our serverless platform to more easily deploy and scale their web bots and scrapers, I thought I’d write a post about a fun scraping challenge I encountered. Solving it required thinking a little bit outside the box I thought I’d share it here since it demonstrates a fairly re-usable approach to scraping heavily-obfuscated sites. This post will dive into how you can use request interception in Puppeteer to beat heavily obfuscated sites that are built to be resistant to scraping.
