Creating a User Activity Dashboard for Amazon CodeWhisperer

Maximizing the value from Enterprise Software tools requires an understanding of who and how users interact with those tools. As we have worked with builders rolling out Amazon CodeWhisperer to their enterprises, identifying usage patterns has been critical. This blog post is a result of that work, builds on Introducing Amazon CodeWhisperer Dashboard blog and […]

Getting started with Projen and AWS CDK

In the modern world of cloud computing, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has become a vital practice for deploying and managing cloud resources. AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) is a popular open-source framework that allows developers to define cloud resources using familiar programming languages. A related open source tool called Projen is a powerful project […]

Deploy container applications in a multicloud environment using Amazon CodeCatalyst

Deploy container applications in a multicloud environment using Amazon CodeCatalyst

In the previous post of this blog series, we saw how organizations can deploy workloads to virtual machines (VMs) in a hybrid and multicloud environment. This post shows how organizations can address the requirement of deploying containers, and containerized applications to hybrid and multicloud platforms using Amazon CodeCatalyst. CodeCatalyst is an integrated DevOps service which […]

10 ways to build applications faster with Amazon CodeWhisperer

Amazon CodeWhisperer is a powerful generative AI tool that gives me coding superpowers. Ever since I have incorporated CodeWhisperer into my workflow, I have become faster, smarter, and even more delighted when building applications. However, learning to use any generative AI tool effectively requires a beginner’s mindset and a willingness to embrace new ways of […]

Build Next-Generation Microservices with .NET 5 and gRPC on AWS

Microservices commonly communicate with JSON over HTTP/1.1. These technologies are ubiquitous and human-readable, but they aren’t optimized for communication between dozens or hundreds of microservices. Next-generation Web technologies, including gRPC and HTTP/2, significantly improve communication speed and efficiency between microservices. AWS offers the most complete platform for builders implementing microservices — and the addition of HTTP/2 and gRPC support in Application Load Balancer (ALB) provides an end-to-end solution for next-generation microservices. ALBs can inspect and route gRPC calls, enabling features like health checks, access logs, and gRPC-specific metrics. This post demonstrates .NET microservices communicating with gRPC via Application Load Balancers.

Blue/Green deployment with AWS Developer tools on Amazon EC2 using Amazon EFS to host application source code

Many organizations building modern applications require a shared and persistent storage layer for hosting and deploying data-intensive enterprise applications, such as content management systems, media and entertainment, distributed applications like machine learning training, etc. These applications demand a centralized file share that scales to petabytes without disrupting running applications and remains concurrently accessible from potentially […]

Github monorepo - CodePipeline Sample Architecture

Integrate GitHub monorepo with AWS CodePipeline to run project-specific CI/CD pipelines

Understand how to automate trigger of project specific code pipeline for GitHub mono repos users. Currently, if a customer is using GitHub as a version control system and he has only one repository which contains multiple folders each for a different project, change in any file, triggers the code pipeline for the whole repository rather than for the appropriate project. With this blog, they would be able to automate trigger of appropriate pipeline based on the project folder where the file gets changed.

Using NuGet with AWS CodeArtifact

Managing NuGet packages for .NET development can be a challenge. Tasks such as initial configuration, ongoing maintenance, and scaling inefficiencies are the biggest pain points for developers and organizations. With its addition of NuGet package support, AWS CodeArtifact now provides easy-to-configure and scalable package management for .NET developers. You can use NuGet packages stored in […]
