Great article! Can we host the code on our own hosting or does it have to be on aws?


You can host the code on your own backend. In the screen where you enter your AWS Lambda URN, right below it is an option where you can specify url of your backend.

But hosting it on lambda is mostly free and also very scalable. If you want you can send http requests from Lambda to your backend and get data from your database or some other sources.

Hope that helps.


Yes thank you...going to delve into this at some point soon. I already pay for hosting so I might as well use it lol
