Working with secrets and security just got easier and better β˜οΈπŸš€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» - Issue #20
By zachjonesnoel • Issue #20 • View online
This is the AWS pre:invent release season which means you would have noticed the amazing list of releases and announcements. In this session, we will also celebrate security which is a big factor when architecting your applications and how in Serverless, it’s easy to achieve.

AWS Announcements πŸ“’
Interesting content πŸš€
Alex Schoenenwald shares his journey of how migrating from Amazon DynamoDB to Amazon Timestream for the IoT or sensor data in real-time has improved the architecture in terms of cost, latency, and the queries on Timestream despite of Amazon DynamoDB being very powerful and scalable.
Depascale Matteo explains in his blog post about Amazon Cognito triggers which gives an overview of the different types of triggers available and the way how we could leverage these triggers when building and architecting our Serverless apps with code snippet examples.
If you are familiar with EventCatelog by David Boyne, then a must-read blog by Matt Martz where he has built the feature of using AWS CDK to deploy EventCatalog where he explains how the front-end assets are hosted on a S3 bucket and using CloudFront distribution and fixing CloudFront URL rewrites with Lambda@Edge functions.
About the announcement of AWS Lamba extensions for parameters and secrets, Vu Dao beautifully explains how to use it in an AWS CDK application in his blog post. And also, Hayao’s blog post calls out why developers should be happy about this announcement.

@alexbdebrie @andreaswittig Actually, I put together some slides on this recently, but it wasn't for SQS FIFO
@zachjonesnoel @andmoredev @edjgeek @benjamin_l_s @mavi888uy I pushed it to a branch from the URL shortener state machine I wrote about the other day.

These screenshots shows the work needed. Easy peasy, but would be great with native metrics for this :-)
What to expect from Serverless tools? βš™οΈ
Marko has built and released Serverless Spy which helps you add an additional layer of monitoring for your events to different AWS Services in real time over a web console hosted locally!
Matt Morgan has published sam-logs-comptroller which is a SAM app to set CloudWatch log groups retention and delete LogGroups at scale.

Thanks for the AWSome day!
Thanks to AWS UG Kochi organizers for inviting me to AWS Community Day Kochi 2022 where I shared about AWS Step Functions and SDK Integrations. This time I even authored a blog post about Why AWS Step Functions and SDK Integrations which speaks about my session.
