  • sqs-consumer

    Build Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) based applications without the boilerplate (by lob)

    Solution: A new repo for working with SQS @lob/sqs-consumer! It's an open fork of the previous package, but it makes a few key changes:

  • consul

    Consul is a distributed, highly available, and data center aware solution to connect and configure applications across dynamic, distributed infrastructure.

    In another effort to standardize development and operations, Lob has just wrapped up our container orchestration migration from Convox to HashiCorp’s Nomad, led by Senior Platform Engineer Elijah Voigt. In this new ecosystem, one feature available to us is Consul Service Mesh (a feature of Consul, which is part of our Lob Nomad stack).

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • Redis

    Redis is an in-memory database that persists on disk. The data model is key-value, but many different kind of values are supported: Strings, Lists, Sets, Sorted Sets, Hashes, Streams, HyperLogLogs, Bitmaps.

    To get things running a bit quicker, he persisted all the data for the tests in the database but was still looking to shortcut the endless send/retrieve in Elasticsearch. So why not Redis? 20 lines of code and 1 cached index later, he saw a 20% improvement in runtime on the large test dataset—a perfect productivity hack! Correr, Dora, Correr!

  • opentelemetry-go

    OpenTelemetry Go API and SDK

    First, utilizing Open Telemetry, or OTel, ”a vendor-neutral open-source Observability framework for instrumenting, generating, collecting, and exporting telemetry data such as traces, metrics, logs.” Using traces and spans, we can get detail and visualization of all the events that took place across multiple services that aren't connected in any way outside of that they're all our services.

  • amazon-sqs-java-messaging-lib

    This Amazon SQS Java Messaging Library holds the Java Message Service compatible classes, that are used for communicating with Amazon Simple Queue Service.

    AWS SQS, or Simple Queue Service, is a piece of infrastructure offered by Amazon; it’s a powerful tool processing data in a controlled manner. “Sqs-consumer” is an existing open-source library for working with SQS.
