Last Thursday I gave a presentation at the Melbourne Golang meetup. In this presentation, I had a slide that contained a warning about “Presso-Driven Development”. Presso-Driven Development, or PDD, is a term I use to explain how some of my code comes into being. To make my life easier, and see how it fares in the wider world, I figured it’s time to put a proper definition out there.
I’m happy to announce that I’m now part of the AWS Community Builder program, in the Dev Tools category.
Yesterday I was a Lead Platform Engineer at DigIO, but today I am a Principal Consultant at CMD Solutions. So, if I actually had business cards they would show I’ve got a new title and work at a different company. Which is sort of true, but also very much not.
ECS Exec is a new feature for ECS that I think sounds really interesting, so I want to talk about it for a bit. And as it’s basically Session Manager for ECS, I’ll also give a quick intro to Session Manager.
Organizations allows you to organise your accounts and SSO does this for your users. Both are useful, so let’s have a look at them.
In this very first episode of Arjen Without Sleep, I give a short overview of what a VPC is and how it works.
During Andy Jassy's keynote at re:Invent he spent an entire section talking about several new products that would extend AWS 'Beyond the Region'. While this will no doubt give some more options, the main way we'll all be running our AWS services is still going to be within a Region. So let's have a look at how these evolved over time.
With re:Invent less than a week out, I figured it was a good time to see how last year's re:Invent held up. After all, every year we get wowed with all the new services and features that are announced, but how long does it take until we can use those? In fact, it's a year later now, but can we actually use everything that was promised?
On May 23, the second iteration in Australia of the Container Camp conference started and this year Bulletproof was a sponsor. Conferences like this always give a good indication of where the market is, and especially to see where it’s going.
As I just returned from a holiday to China, I wanted to share some of my observations about technology there. This is only meant as a general overview and is completely based on what I saw around me.
