Notes about IP Address and Subnet Mask

Everything is working on binary number system in computers, so it is valid in IP addresses as well.

Assume that IP address is in dotted-decimal format is equal to 11000000.10101000.00000001.00000000 in dotted-binary format.

Assume that Subnet Mask is in dotted-decimal format is equal to 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000 in dotted-binary format. Subnet Mask is shown in /24 in slash notation(known as CIDR notation)

IP Address with Subnet Mask can be shown in CIDR notation

CIDR gives a concise way to represent both an IP network and its size using a combination of an IP address and a number after a slash.

Subnet Mask is 24 after slash in decimal representation. In order to find out 24, Subnet mask should be represented in binary number system like 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000. So, just count how many 1 bit there are in Subnet Mask.

IP Address: 11000000.10101000.00000001.00000000
Subnet Mask: 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000

How to create AWS Lambda with AWS SAM CLI

According to my experience, if you want to create an AWS Lambda without interactive mode, 15 templates below don't exists for each runtime, for example, Data processing template only exists for dotnet and nodejs.

Notice that third template name is Hello World Example with Powertools for AWS Lambda in below output, but if you want to create a project with python runtime and third template in the below sam init output, you have to use hello-world-powertools-python as a template name. But it is not mentioned in help. So, i just used sam init in interactive mode and output of this command showed me template name.

sam init --name my-data-processing-app --runtime python3.9 --dependency-manager pip --app-template hello-world-powertools-python

$ sam init

You can preselect a particular runtime or package type when using the `sam init` experience.
Call `sam init --help` to learn more.

Which template source would you like to use?
	1 - AWS Quick Start Templates
	2 - Custom Template Location

How to create AWS Lambda, Azure Function, Google Cloud Function with Serverless Framework CLI

Serverless framework is a CLI to build cloud applications. There are more than 10 Serverless Infrastructure Providers like AWS, Azure and GCP as shown below screenshot.

Find more Serverless Framework CLI command in Azure Serverless TypeScript project in GitHub

According to my experience, Serverless Framework gives a better support for AWS provider, for example, if you see project template below, there are many project templates for AWS but very less support for other providers.
