Today I pushed the penultimate version of the web site I've been working on for Farmer Frog to the test site for testing. If all goes well, we will be launching at some point in the next couple of weeks and that will bring the current development cycle to an end. I've always found it fascinating to reflect on the journey that each development cycle brings because I always learn something about myself.
A funny thing happened on the way to reaching code complete on the Farmer Frog website. I needed to integrate an AWS Lambda function with the Google Calendar API. Now, you might ask yourself why I would need to do that, and it's a fair question. The short answer is that the website needs to be able to retrieve and display the public events without taking the user away from the website.
