Mince Pie Challenge: Building a Serverless RESTful API and React Client

In this blog-series I wish to document my experience building a complete Serverless application which harnesses as many of the AWS offerings as possible. We will explore building both a RESTful API and a React Client, all hosted without any Servers to maintain!

With so much to do, we better get started! Join me in the next post were we will go about designing and documenting our RESTful API using RAML and HAL.
