Now that AWS EKS is generally available its time to give it a try…

I’ve been using AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS) for a few years now and absolutely love Docker and container management. Rolling deployments, Microservices, CI/CD pipelines, etc… What’s not to love?

Kubernetes seems to be the big winner in Container Management though… and now that AWS EKS is generally available it…

Check out this awesome Serverless Stack with built-in CI/CD and Blue-Green Deployments

I love building CloudFormation stacks, crazy I know… I also love serverless event-driven architectures, who doesn’t…

I wanted to create a reusable stack that I could easily use to build web applications.

The stack consists of an API, UI, and Async Tasks. This isn’t the cool part.

The cool part…

Wouldn’t it be great to just check in your infrastructure and code changes and they get deployed automatically?

Back in October I posted the Services Stack. The Services Stack is a collection of CloudFormation templates, to create a microservices application on AWS. If you haven’t seen it already please go check it out.

After posting the Services Stack I got a lot of great feedback, mostly all good…

A Product Hunt Hackathon Build

Continuous Integration for Serverless Functions

I recently built FunctionCI as part of the Product Hunt Global Hackathon to solve a pain point I was having with AWS Lambdas. Specifically with Continuous Integration, deployments, and audit trails. Before I dive too deep into FunctionCI let me explain what Continuous Integration and Serverless Lambda functions are.

Quickly spin up a microservices stack on AWS

What is a microservice?

The microservice architectural style [1] is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an HTTP resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery…

What is serverless?

Serverless architectures refer to applications that significantly depend on third-party services (knows as Backend as a Service or “BaaS”) or on custom code that’s run in ephemeral containers (Function as a Service or “FaaS”), the best known vendor host of which currently is AWS Lambda.
