[Links of the Day] 27/11/2018 : AWS deployment workflow framework, Dockerize your dev workflow, Nuke your AWS account

  • Odin : yet another AWS deployment solution. But this time with step function!! The concept is rather ingenious. And I wish we could literally script cloud formation deployment cycle using step function and lambda. There is probably a way using the WaitCondition and stuff. But it seems extremely convoluted. In the meantime kudos to Coinbase, I really like it and hope to adopt some of Odin mechanism myself.
  • Binci : containerize development workflow with docker. Personally, I have used docker compose to do it. I have a little bit of an issue with npm/JS as the core language for these type of solution. But all in all, containerizing your development environment and workflow should be standard practice by now in the industry. Sadly it is isn't yet. 
  • cloud-nuke : want to wipe your AWS/Azure/GCP resources associated with an account, use cloud-nuke. Alternative solution: aws-nuke Nuka-Cola sold separately...
