Recently I had the need to create a Lambda function with PowerShell 7. The function is to synchronize data between two REST APIs. It’s fairly simple, but does need to use a custom made module. I spent quite bit time to find out how to deploy PowerShell Lambdas with custom modules. Thought might write a guide to help people want to do the same. My script is fairly simple, it gets a list of users from one API and then convert it to a XML format object and export into the target API.
I had a long holiday in China recently. It had been a fun and eyes opening trip. Feels like the whole nation is in the middle of a “technology revolution”. Among all, Internet has become one of the core driving force. But while Wifi beomces a life essential here, the infamous Great Firewall (GFW) is also getting more effective. After tried numbers of paid and free VPN providers, I just could not find a reliable VPN service to simply let me post a picture on Facebook.
