  1. I’m really happy I found your post, as testing in serverless is not a much talked about topic! I’m not sure if you’re following it on purpose, but the pattern you’re proposing is really close to Clean Architecture. One thing that I have done recently to extremely simply writing tests is to abstract out the “interfaces” such as s3, sqs, etc from the business logic. I wrote a wrapper for each interface that presents an api to the business logic, and use an application context factory to inject the interface dependencies. That way, you can test the wrapper, and your business logic – but you can completely fake your interfaces with a test application context. No need to instantiate AWS() in your tests that way.

  2. Thanks Chris!
    Yes, this pattern is quite similar to the Clean Architecture, with the accent on decoupling components (I/O etc) from the core logic.
