Shine’s Cliff Subagio, Stephen Shim, and Michael Diender recently submitted a couple of entries to the recent AWS Serverless Chatbot Hackathon that we think are pretty cool.

In all seriousness, we’re big fans of the possibilities of serverless technologies and AWS Lambda in particular. It’s great to see how Lambda can be strung together with other technologies in creative ways. Great work Cliff, Stephen, and Michael!

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
