In lieu of a single weekly note, I will be writing several articles to catch up with some of the events from re:Invent. Chris helped out last week with his post about the DynamoDB changes, and today I will start my write-ups with the coolest new toy: DeepRacer.
That’s a wrap for re:Invent 2018! Whilst Arjen will no doubt be providing us with the low down on all things containers in due course, I’ve hijacked his excellent blog to bring you a short guest post on serverless database news.
At the APN Ambassador day during re:Invent I gave a lightning talk about Fargate that went a bit deeper than my previous talks.
CloudFormation Macros were introduced recently, and they add a lot of power. In this article I want to take a look at how you can build and test one of these.
In October I gave a Serverless Containers Deep Dive talk at several events, which focused on AWS Fargate. This article is a written version of these presentations, and also contains the recording of when I repeated this talk at the Melbourne AWS User Group.
Fargate bastions allow you to spin up a bastion host only when you need it and tear it down afterwards. All using AWS serverless technologies, which means that you don't pay anything for them unless you actively use it.
Yesterday I woke up to an email from AWS, saying that the serverless app I wrote was being featured on the SAR website. Which seems like a good enough reason to detail how it works.
About two years ago, while waiting for my visa to come through, I started writing a book about the AWS CLI. I did a fair bit of writing on it, but life happened, and I forgot about it until recently. I've decided to finish the writing and start posting it here.
When it became publicly available, I said I'd give the Serverless Application Repository a try. Yesterday I released my first public application on there, so that makes it an excellent time to write about it.
You can use conditionals in CloudFormation to make a template more reusable across projects or environments. Today I'll be showing how that works.
