Welcome back to your fortnightly retrospective on all the most interesting stories and code from people building great software. I hope you’ve enjoyed your Easter break and recovered from all the chocolate you’ve received.
This week has been particularly exciting for me in that I got my first covid jab. The process was very swift as I’d actually phoned to reschedule my paper invitation, but ended up getting an invite within the hour. I also met my niece for the first time ever over in England. It has meant more driving for me over the course of 2 days than in the last 6 months.
In todays issue we focus on the architecture of your SaaS. Should it be simple with less features, using something like Heroku - or more complex, featuring every AWS service under the sun? I even decided to make a video on the topic linked below.
New for this issue, I’ve decided to include a couple of interesting discounted kindle links of books I’ve seen. I can’t guarantee I’ll do this every issue, but thought these were good enough to be worth mentioning. These are affiliate links, so I’ll get a small commission if you decide to buy through them at no extra cost to you.
As always, if you have any comments or content suggestions for future issues, please feel free to reply to this email and let me know.
Until next time, keep on shipping!
