In a previous blog post we built QuickSight Datasets by directly loading files from S3. In the wild the data in S3 is often already aggregated or even transformed in Athena. In this new blog post we see how to create a QuickSight Dataset directly relying on Athena.

In this post I’ll show you how to trigger your Lambda functions in intervals smaller than a minute using StepFunctions and the CDK.
Detect the crack in the window (or the lambda library) before it breaks: As we have seen during the last month, also well known libraries like log4j can have previously unknown vulnerabilities. Therefore scanning your Lambda application before deploying is not enough! What happens if a new cybersecurity vulnerability occurs while your functions are running? Solution: Amazon Inspector. Only problem: it`s not available for Lambda yet. Fortunately, you can deploy Lambda with container images and Inspector will continuously scan these images for you. Want to know how set up Lambda & Inspector and see how evil Node vulnerabilities are detected? Read on!
Views of the Pyramids: From a monolithic Test process to a Serverless Test Automation with CodeBuild
Comparing the development methodology of a monolithic program to a Serverless IAC application you will see that the power of DevOps lies in automating everything. I will show you a working example of a serverless CI pipeline with automated unit, integration and end2end test and test reports in CodeBuild. The full source is written GO, with references to Node.JS and python for the test parts.
This is a live Blog from the workshop “Cloud Driven Development” on https://devopenspace.de/. Forget a lot of what you know about classic full-stack development. Together, we’ll dive into cloud-driven software development and build a sample serverless application in AWS. This blog was build live during the workshop on November 2021. So it`s not a complete reference, just a few hints to test and deploy the infrastructure and the applications.
End of September 2021, AWS announced Graviton 2 powered Lambda Functions. The announcement post says “All Lambda runtimes built on top of Amazon Linux 2, including the custom runtime, are supported on Arm…”. Not all languages out of the box, for using GO as fast language on a fast Graviton processor, you have to use Docker based deployment. Here I show you a simple - CDK powered way to do that.
AWS BI solution Amazon QuickSight provides a neat and powerful web console to handle most use cases. Nevertheless, as soon as a need for automation appears, relying on IaC can help increase productivity.
