Fantastic overview. Have you tried setting up Netlify CMS with Gatsby, too? I wonder what the pros/cons would be comparing the two approaches. I think Netlify has a managed DNS and built-in CDN which could make it interesting to explore.

Cheers. I haven't tried Netlify, but I know people who have. I reckon it'd simplify some of the management and deployment, but the depth of configurability with AWS makes it a more interesting option for me, and I work with AWS a lot, so I need to keep my tools sharp!
I'm now playing with NPM to automate build-test-deploy and work around the cloudfront invalidations.
