  • Project mention: Optimizing Costs in the Cloud: Embracing a FinOps Mindset | | 2024-04-02

    Sometimes, changing services, like opting for HTTP over REST API Gateway, leveraging tools like Lambda Powertuning to optimize functions, or reducing a CloudWatch log retention and changing log level, can lead to significant savings.

  • Project mention: Cloudflare Sippy: Incrementally Migrate Data from AWS S3 to Reduce Egress Fees | | 2023-10-15

    I had been running with for pennies a month.

    Then, one month, I got a ~$500 bill out of no where.

    Docker had changed an api causing my service to return 5xx errors all month. Each error was individually logged to CloudWatch - which racked up a ~$500 bill.

    I moved to Cloudflare Workers that day and haven’t moved back.

  • components

    The Serverless Framework's new infrastructure provisioning technology — Build, compose, & deploy serverless apps in seconds... (by serverless)

  • former2

    Generate CloudFormation / Terraform / Troposphere templates from your existing AWS resources.

  • Project mention: Top 10 terraform tools you should know about. | | 2023-12-11

    Former2 is a tool that automates the creation of Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) scripts from existing AWS resources. It utilizes the AWS JavaScript SDK to scan the user’s AWS infrastructure, identifying all available resources. Users can then select from this list which resources they want to include in their IaC outputs. This process simplifies the task of writing IaC scripts, especially for complex environments, by directly converting current AWS configurations into ready-to-use code. Former2 is particularly useful for documenting existing infrastructure or for migrating manually created resources into an IaC framework.

  • Project mention: In 2024, please switch to Firefox | | 2023-12-29

    That is really nice! I currently use AWS Extend Switch Roles extension[1] to switch profiles, but an automated way to confine those roles to their own profiles would be very neat.
