Amazon Chime SDK: Deploying live events solution screenshot

How to deploy a live events solution built with the Amazon Chime SDK

In this tutorial, I will explain how to deploy an interactive live events solution with which speakers can present to a large pre-selected audience, and moderators can screen attendees to participate in the broadcast. This interactive live events solution, built with the Amazon Chime SDK, addresses many of the shortcomings of traditional online meeting platforms […]

Simplifying serverless best practices with Lambda Powertools

Modern applications are increasingly relying on compute platforms based on containers and serverless technologies to provide scalability, cost efficiency, and agility. Although this shift toward more distributed architectures has unlocked many benefits, it has also introduced new complexity in how the applications are operated. In times past, debugging was as straightforward as logging into the […]

Why Jenkins still continuously serves developers

For an estimated 15 million developers, Jenkins is synonymous with countless iterations of collectible stickers of the iconic, non-assuming butler that have adorned their laptops all over the world. The butler is representative of the ubiquitous open source continuous integration (CI) technology that has quietly automated an endless set of development tasks for well over […]

Continuous delivery with server-side Swift on Amazon Linux 2

In January, I published an article describing how to use AWS tools to build, test, and release server-side Swift code on two platforms: Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) running Ubuntu Linux. Recently Swift.org has released official support for the Amazon Linux 2 operating system. This article is a […]

Monitor AWS services used by Kubernetes with Prometheus and PromCat

AWS offers Amazon CloudWatch to provide observability of the operational health for your AWS resources and applications through logs, metrics, and events. CloudWatch is a great way to monitor and visualize AWS resources metrics and logs. Recently I’ve found that some customers are adopting Prometheus as their monitoring standard because it offers the ability to […]

Automating your ECS container architecture deployments with ECS ComposeX

This is a guest post by a third-party author. John Preston is an experienced solution architect who enjoys development and who has spent time working on and open sourcing the automation of AWS architecture deployments, including the ECS ComposeX open source project. In this post, John talks about the motivation for this project, and how […]

Deploy, track, and roll back RDS database code changes using open source tools Liquibase and Jenkins

Customers across industries and verticals deal with relational database code deployment. In most cases, developers rely on database administrators (DBAs) to perform the database code deployment. This works well when the number of databases and the amount of database code changes are low. As organizations scale, however, they deal with different database engines—including Oracle, SQL […]

Managing secrets deployment in Kubernetes using Sealed Secrets

Kubernetes is an open source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It is especially suitable for building and deploying cloud-native applications on a massive scale, leveraging the elasticity of the cloud. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a managed service for running a production-grade, highly available Kubernetes cluster on […]

AutoGluon how-to tutorial

Machine learning with AutoGluon, an open source AutoML library

If you work in data science, you might think that the hardest thing about machine learning is not knowing when you’ll be done. You start with a problem, a dataset, and an idea about how to solve it, but you never know whether your approach is going to work until later, after you’ve wasted time. […]

How a startup wants to help secure the open source ecosystem with huntr, a bug bounty board

This article is a guest post from 418sec co-founders Adam Nygate, Jake Mimoni, and Jamie Slome. Dependency on open source code has grown over the years, and as new open source technologies are introduced, so are more vulnerabilities. Review by “many eyes” helps secure open source software, and depends on exposing the code to as […]
