And I was reminded of this difference just last week. Thanks to the logging dashboard I described in my previous post, I realized that I had set up my API Gateway all wrong. From a developer's standpoint, it was totally fine. But when I took a look from a DevOps perspective, (and more importantly, an account owner's perspective,) I realized that my mistake could have cost me money.
