AWS has a nice free tier. AWS CDK, Digger & ts2asl are nice. SLIC Starter seems great as AWS serverless starter.

Haven't used AWS much but did use GCP which is similar. One thing I learned is that settting up billing alerts is a must have so as to not overpay for compute. Also ideally you use services you truly need from these cloud providers, because the pricing does get a bit crazy at times.

SST seems like useful framework. Pulumi AWS is nice too.
