I wrote a facial rekognition app in under two hours *

OK, I'll admit I didn't actually write the facial recognition bit of my app. But, I did find out how painless, quick and incredibly cheap it is to add facial recognition to your repertoire. As soon as I saw the release of Rekognition back in early December 2016, I wanted to play with it but just didn't have the opportunity at the time. A few weeks later, I read the famous post about building Jarvis from Mark Zuckerberg. And, guess what, the facial recognition part stood out to me once again.
