Is there a URL-shortener example made with raw AWS resources? I need it for comparison with the one based on pulumi-cloud (https://github.com/pulumi/examples/tree/master/cloud-ts-url-shortener).

@lemon-spoon-91807 and @white-balloon-205 probably have the best pointers. However: - We have a truly "raw" serverless example here https://github.com/pulumi/examples/blob/master/aws-ts-serverless-raw/index.ts Cyrus is working on a "middle layer" that takes many of the lessons about what sort of abstractions worked in the cloud API, and translating them to be AWS-specific, so that you get full access to the underlying resources. We'll be talking a lot more about this in the weeks to come. That isn't quite "raw" but is a nice comparison: - Video Thumbnailer using cloud: https://github.com/pulumi/examples/tree/master/cloud-js-thumbnailer - Video Thumbnailer using this new AWS layer: https://github.com/pulumi/examples/tree/master/aws-ts-thumbnailer
Oh! It looks like we do have the URL shortener written using this middle layer. Again, not raw, but AWS-specific.

Why is the last one aws-specific? Seems it just uses
cloud
stuff?
Well, it's
cloud-aws
but it's could be general cloud?
Or where is the more cloudy example? 🤔

I think I'm good for now with links from Joe. I was a bit confused about what "middle tier" is.
