I hope you made a few dollar cents from your click bait title. Yes, you’re right, as with any tool (because that’s what they are) you can use the AWS services in the wrong way.

However most of your arguments fall into the category ‘a fool with a tool is still a fool’ and ‘let us hack an app together without coordination — who needs an architecture’.

‘Lessons learned from using 5 AWS services the wrong way’ would have been a better title.
