API-less

I was always complaining about how AWS made APIs that are inconsistent in so many dimensions. AWS teams can’t even (read “don’t care”) to agree on how to name pagination related fields.

Because I am such who was that again? an important person, I hope at least someone everybody in AWS have read my blog and they are checking by mistake it at least twice a day for new stupid rants extreme wisdom.

One of these people said “Fook you, Ilya” and made a service without API. Not kidding. Meet AWS Control Tower. No API, no CLI, no CloudFormation. “Take that, Ilya!”

For some balance I will mention that other people in AWS are trying to do some uniform API. Not stellar at the moment but hey, at least they are trying.

Have a nice $(curl https://api.timeofday.example.com/) !
