AWS Serverless Application Model: Here we go!

AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) was released a couple months ago. The punch line of this new release in my mind is the ability to version your lambda function code and your cloudformation template next to each other. The idea being to have completely packaged serverless application that deploy from a single repository.

Getting an AWS IAM Certificate ARN

I was recently working on a cloudformation template that needed an ELB with an HTTPS listener. My company already has a wildcard cert uploaded to IAM for use in staging environments, so I wanted to use that cert rather than create a new one.

The classic load balancer and the newer Application Load Balancer look a little different for creating HTTPS listeners, but both require you to include the certificate ARN in your template.
