It will be a very practical session targeted at builders who want to create cloud connected devices and solutions. Beginners are very welcome, we'll go from the basics of getting devices securely connected to storing data and integrating applications. Also, this is a continued experiment with new kinds of content in new languages, let us know if that is valuable to you and what you'd like to build with AWS.

In the last episode of Well Architected Solutions on Twitch we started working on the Reliability Pillar, addressing the management of service limits and network topology design. Unfortunately we had audio issues that made it a bit tough, huge thanks to everyone who stayed on stream! Next Monday we’ll have flawless audio (Thanks toAmazon Live Events!) and begin implementing a new best practice: REL 3 How does your system adapt to changes in demand?

To build that we’ll need to produce HTTP requests using load generators to simulate real users. This episode is dedicated to getting a simple application up and start firing at it, but under the design guidelines from the Well Architected Framework. The infrastructure will be defined as code using AWS CloudFormation and AWS Elastic Beanstalk. …

A technical problem is not a bad way to start talking about architectures. I had a perfect audio setup with a Shure SM-57 dynamic mic with a dbx 286 preamp and Audient iD22 interface but failed to notice that the streamed audio had only the right channel. Sorry about that. Luckly i got the mic bundled with another interface that outputs both channels. Without the noise reduction from preamp you can hear my fan, but also some sound architectural best practices :)

Early in the review it became clear the importance of infrastructure as code for continuous delivery. So we took an introduction to Amazon CloudFormation writing our first YAML template, to create a simple S3 bucket for now. Take a look at the AWS Resource Type Reference for all the details on the resources you can include in CloudFormation stacks. …
