Hey what is the best back-end to #create and edit #videos online? I am not looking for smth complicated but simply for something to concatenate videos or to add music. I have tried to run #ffmpeg on #AWS lambda or #GCP but it is slow or it fails. Any good infra? #buildinpublic
Yesterday, I created this list of #RDS DB instances. Today I plan to get CloudWatch metrics to determine which of those are not used at all (no active connections), and which are over-provisioned - this is much harder to implement. #buildInPublic#aws
When you create your entities in #DynamoDb, do you make your attributes as small as possible? What I'm saving in the db I'm making them 1-2-3 characters long and what my API returns has a proper name that I can understand. Is it too much, too little? #startup#buildinpublic#AWS
How can I create a private API with API Gateway that exposes an IP that I can call from inside my VPC? From ApiGateway I can only get an URL. Asking as I need to route calls from my local machine down the Direct Connect and to my VPC and then to the API. How? #buildinpublic#AWS
Day 3/60. Continued thinking about my entities and playing with NoSql Workbench to visualise how the db will look like. It's hard work after my day job to find time to work for me. How are others managing? No excuse. #AWS#Dynamodb#NoSql#SaaS#buildinpublic#startups
Funny enough I was looking over my AWS bill and our product is running so slim it only takes up 20% of the bill. The rest is spent on a demo account so we can show off the product. #aws#startup#buildinpublic
Last night I built in logging instead of to flat files (blech!) on my EC2 instance to Cloudwatch along with pushing messages to an SQS message queue. My code has totally changed since I really learned #AWS. Now I'm like do you even scale bro?
Today we are working on the “organisations microservice”. First developing it locally in a test-driven way with jest, and then deploying the lambda using CDK and finally testing its implementation in the product. Let’s go! #aws#jest#buildinpublic#saas
