API Gateway Perf

At the time of writing, AWS API gateway doesn’t support gzip requests, so I’ve been handling this at the lambda function itself and client side. Obviously compression makes a dramatic difference w.r.t performance, just ask the guys at Pied Piper 🙂 Another curious absence is support for multipart form data; attached a screen grab from a hexdump of what should be a PNG at the lambda function. Again something that is handled at the endpoint, but hopefully incorporated into the gateway soon.
