Serverless Functions Saved My Life

This post was originally published on October 12, 2020 on my blog.

As I was clearing out my email inbox this morning, I came across the exact solution to my problem last week (when I couldn't figure out how to hide my environment variables without creating a server).

And that beautiful solution is a serverless function in Netlify!

And to think I was this close to deleting a Netlify marketing email with the key that unlocks this week's universe - dodged a bullet there!

So today's work is developing a serverless function that can access my secret API key (for my podcast website) and then be able to render the podcast episodes from the podcast host's third-party API instead of having to rely on hard-coded data.

Looking forward to it! And thank you to the several individuals who helped me out in my last post - this is truly a wonderful community of helpful folks!

P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>
