Several folks expressed a desire to see more examples and getting started guides for AWS Lambda Runtime library.
There are many potential users and use cases for Lambda, to name a few:
- iOS/macOS application developers with no server experience that want to extend their applications into the cloud.
- Experienced Swift on Server developers that want to add event driven components to their systems.
- Server developers with no Swift experience that want to try Swift on Server.
This wide range of potential users and user cases make it difficult to decide on what we should focus first, and we would like to hear your feedback on that question.
Additionally, several community members (@adam-fowler, @Andrea-Scuderi @fabianfett and @tachyonics to name a few) stepped up to write guides and add examples. Right now, these guides and examples are spread between the project's readme, personal blogs and repos, and the project's "Examples" directory. To make these more discoverable, we would like to suggest the following:
- Readme stays focus with minimal examples.
- The "Examples" directory limited to examples that do not introduce additional dependencies. Its important to keep the examples build time manageable and stable as they are part of the project's CI tests
- Elaborate guides and examples to be managed in separate repos and personal blogs, and linked to from a new "Resources" (name tbd) section at the top part of the readme.
What do folks think?
