Amazon DynamoDB is a non-relational serverless database that can scale automatically to handle massive amounts of traffic and data without you need manage any servers


In this module you’ve created a DynamoDB table and then a Lambda function to write data into it.

This function will be put behind an Amazon API Gateway in the next module which will in turn be connected to your web application to capture the ride details from your users.
