  • CloudFormation deploying cross-account resources
    2 projects | | 31 Jan 2023
    Based on this PR, it looks like the AWS CDK now has a native mechanism for sharing values between cross-region stacks. I haven't tested that yet but it appears to use a similar strategy underneath the hood. There's a note in that PR that it "Could be updated to do cross account references as well" so perhaps the AWS CDK will simplify this process for us in the near future.

  • Split Horizon DNS in AWS Made Easy!
    2 projects | | 30 Jan 2023
    A few months ago, I deployed my first private hosted zone to Route 53. Unbeknownst to me, I had set up a split horizon DNS scenario. My public zone was routing calls to my load balancer correctly. But every time my resources deployed in the VPC called into the same domain, it would result in errors like... getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND _domain_... I spun and thrashed and tried everything I could think of. Then after hours of debugging, while doing some "pair debugging" they made the suggestion that we duplicate the A record in the public zone into the private zone. Lo and behold problem is solved. So, if you have resources deployed to a VPC and a private zone attached to said VPC, and a public zone sharing the domain name. When your resources are all in the domain, it will use the private zone and the private zone only for resolution. I spent some time learning and digging deeper into Route53 and DNS in general, to better understand the situation and why the solution was what it was. I found this article in the Route53 docs that explained almost the exact situation I was in. Considering how much I enjoy working with the CDK, and how much I struggled with this DNS configuration. I figured what better way to improve my understanding than to build a solution, that hopefully will help others avoid the headache I went through.
  • How to use AWS step functions to call lambda?
    2 projects | | 28 Jan 2023
    If you want to go down the infra as code route you can define the step function in Amazon States Language (JSON) which will define all your states (the steps in your step function). You can then deploy via CDK, serverless, or whatever other framework you use to deploy..OR..and this may be simpler if this is your first step function, you can build it all in the console which has some pretty cool visualisations and ui's available to make understanding your step function and how it flows easier.

  • ⚡️Serverless Frameworks for 2023

    AWS CDK, Cloud Development Kit, is very different from our previous two candidates. It takes an imperative approach and lets you write your infrastructure code in the same language that you already use to write the rest of the application, and then synthesizes the code to CloudFormation to deploy it. A CDK app consists of building blocks called constructs, and these constructs can be shared and re-used. A perhaps unexpected aspect is that the nature of how you build your CDK apps makes it very easy to write actual unit tests for your infrastructure.
