Very excited to be part of the AWS Community Builders and looking forward to learn more about “the latest services, as well as best practices for creating technical content, increasing reach, and sharing AWS knowledge across online and in-person communities”
A recap of the news articles I wrote for InfoQ in September 2020.

Using Serverless Backends to Iterate Quickly on Web Apps
In a series of three technical articles, AWS has recently shown the advantage of building serverless backends to iterate quickly on web apps and be able to follow changing product requirements. These development methodology and architecture allow flexibility but increase coupling with cloud vendor services.
Amazon Cloudwatch Dashboards Supports Sharing
AWS recently introduced the ability to share Amazon CloudWatch Dashboards with users who do not have access to the AWS account. This feature opens up new use cases for dashboards, including sharing metrics and information on big screens, or embed real-time information in public pages.
The conference will run for 28 hours on 20-21 October 2020 and will cover topics on Open Source Databases and Applications using MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and MariaDB. You can find the full agenda online and register for free.
Is serverless the future of relational databases? Looking forward to be part of DeveloperWeek Global: Cloud Conference, one of the world’s largest virtual software developer event series, and discuss relational databases on the cloud. See you online at the end of September! More about my talk here.
AWS has recently made AWS Wavelength zones in San Francisco and Boston available to provide a subset of their computing services on Verizon datacenters. The new zones will allow developers to build applications that can benefit from the ultra-low latency of the mobile carriers.
HashiCorp, the company behind the software tool Terraform, introduces a platform to run their products on AWS, Azure, and GCP as managed services. This will extend their enterprise offer with a focus on multi-cloud environments.
