Providing quality software engineering content in the form of tutorials, applications, services, and commentary suited for developers.
In this article I walk through the process of setting up an automated process utilizing AWS S3, Lambda, and Elastic Transcoder to embed a watermark in to videos initiated by uploading to an S3 bucket.
In this article I discuss how to deploy a simple Flask Todo app complete with a PostgreSQL database to the AWS cloud on a Amazon Linux 2 AMI utilizing Nginx web server and uWSGI application server
In this article I demonstrate how to setup a log shipped replica of a Postgres v11 master database creating a warm standby replica for High Availability and read scaling utilizing the WAL-E program. WAL-E is a Python based program designed to facilitate performing continuous archiving of PostgreSQL WAL files and base backups.
In this article I discuss a general process I used recently to migrate a large multi-terabyte Heroku Postgres Database from the Heroku Platform to Amazon Aurora Postgres on a live Heroku based application architecture with near zero downtime and builtin failover during the process.
In this article I demonstrate how to build a serverless REST API using the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) framework along with the popular Python based Flask micro web framework.
In this article I discuss the merits of using Lambda versioning and aliases along with the AWS Serverless Application Model's (SAM) built-in capability to utilize CodeDeploy with weighted traffic routing for Gradual Deployments
In this article I demonstrate how to setup a AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) project for near realtime streaming of CloudWatch logs to S3 using Kinesis Data Firehose. To keep things interesting I'll be using a Python based demo application that exposes two REST APIs, one for scraping and saving quotes from the web to a DyanmoDB table and another for listing the saved quotes.
In this article I demonstrate how utilize Lambda Layers to share reuable code among multiple Python AWS Lambda functions within AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) applications.
In this article I give an introduction to Online Analytical Processing databases comparing them against traditional Online Transaction Processing Systems. Emphasis is put on designing and building Star Schemas and Reporting tables using Data Engineering processes like Extract, Transform and Load all within a Aurora PostgreSQL database.
