The first part of this series introduced you to the AWS Lambda Go API Proxy, and how its framework/package-specific adapter implementations (for gorilla/mux, echo and net/http) allows you to run existing Go applications as AWS Lambda functions fronted by Amazon API Gateway. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to take a look at it in order to get a basic understanding of the AWS Lambda Go API Proxy.

The AWS Lambda Go API Proxy also supports Gin, which is one of the most popular Go web frameworks! This follow-up blog post will demonstrate how to take an existing URL shortener service written using the Gin framework and run it as a serverless AWS Lambda function. Instead of using AWS SAM, we will change things up a bit and use the AWS CDK to deploy the solution.
