  • Anyone running ASP.Net Core on AWS Lambda? Or dotnet on AWS Lambda in general? | 2021-03-02
    What's your thoughts on AWS Lambda for microservices? Long story short, I'm debating converting an app I originally built in core to AWS Lambda to save money. It's currently running in a container on ECS Fargate. AWS offers a dotnet cli extension that allows me to pretty much bootstrap my api to run on Lambda while keeping the core framework: Honestly, the only reason I'm considering doing this is cost ... as this is a side project that I someday plan to make public. I started rewriting the api in pure NodeJS with Typescript to run on AWS Lambda and I really miss the built in functionality I get with core framework and beauty of dotnet.

  • A sustainable architecture for Ruby on Rails | 2021-02-25
    This write once and never rewrite again is almost mythical in consumer facing startups anyway. IF that were the case we would do everything in core but no we will use less architectured solutions during startup for the speed of making changes and pivoting to new features that a startup often ends up needing to address.
