I spent some spare time over 2-3 days trying to figure out how to get AWS (Amazon Web Services) working with APNS using SNS (Simple Notification Service). Since the majority of my AWS experience is using Fog, my hands-on experience was a little lacking. The docs are full of hard-to-understand and hard-to-keep-track-of (for me, at least) names for services and permissions and all kinds of fun stuff. I wanted to post what I did to get it to work in hopes that it’ll help someone in the future. I’ll use a few external links/references for common things like generating a development certificate with Apple. I’m more focused on the AWS stuff here.
