A Javascript padawan's expedition into AWS DynamoDB - the journey begins.

If you have been using Javascript of years you may find it easy to quickly assemble a web page that can use Dynamo DB as a back end. But what if you are new to both Javascript and DynamoDB? Well then it is not easy, at least not at first. It was not easy for me. I will show how I built a very simple Javascript web application that can get user input and store it in AWS in a NOSQL database. I'll show you what I tried and how I overcame the blockers, one step at a time.


I used the Gatsby JS framework to get started, the grid layout to display cards, the AWS Javascript SDK to query and update AWS DynamoDB, and React's state hooks to leverage the async nature of DynamoDB response.
