    We decided to use AWS Lambda for several serverless tasks such as

    • Managing AWS backups
    • Processing emails received on Amazon SES and stored to Amazon S3 and notified via Amazon SNS, so as to push a message on our Redis so our Sidekiq Rails workers can process inbound emails
    • Pushing some relevant Amazon CloudWatch metrics and alarms to Slack

    Instead of Amazon SNS, which is currently being used to send outbound push notification and including SMS, we want to build the 2 Way SMS using Amazon Pinpoint. Just want to know about Pinpoint and any outstanding issues if we drop SNS since it does not support 2 Way and use Pinpoint for both incoming and outgoing flow.

      At the beginning of the ¹OnePlace project, our team needed to decide which service to use to send bulk notifications to all users quickly and consistently. We tested some services without success and as we already used firebase we decided to implement in the beginning using Notifications by Firebase. We're having trouble updating the user's token to see if it has removed the app or not. This brought a working overhead and we were not sure if the notification had arrived at the destination. Today we use OneSignal, which did not bring reliability to the submitted notifications, nor do we need to bother with manual token updates. We ship approximately 500 thousand notifications with 100% delivery!

      Hi there, we are a seed-stage startup in the personal development space. I am looking at building the marketing stack tool to have an accurate view of the user experience from acquisition through to adoption and retention for our upcoming React Native Mobile app. We qualify for the startup program of Segment and Mixpanel, which seems like a good option to get rolling and scale for free to learn how our current 60K free members will interact in the new subscription-based platform. I was considering AppsFlyer for attribution, and I am now looking at an affordable yet scalable Mobile Marketing tool vs. building in-house. Braze looks great, so does Leanplum, but the price points are 30K to start, which we can't do. I looked at OneSignal, but it doesn't have user flow visualization. I am now looking into Urban Airship and Iterable. Any advice would be much appreciated!
