Take one feature and see how difficult it is to build it.

>> They can then  automatically generate an SDK based off of these json definitions. One example of this is Rusoto, the AWS SDK for Rust:
>> Rusoto: https://github.com/rusoto/rusoto <https://github.com/rusoto/rusoto>
>> Automatic generation portion: https://github.com/rusoto/rusoto/tree/master/service_crategen <https://github.com/rusoto/rusoto/tree/master/service_crategen>
>> Would anyone interested in supporting this kind of project?
>> What would be a good starting-point?
>> Although I am (to be honest: I was) a Smalltalk-Programmer, I have too little experience with Pharo - but maybe others might find this useful. It would also be useful to "spread the word" - AWS scripting/ automation is so popular, there would be so many occasions to showcase Pharo + AWS or to create Products that are based on AWS services.
