Hey all, I’m doing a weekly twitter standup, mostly for myself. But if you or anyone else would like to join, feel free to ping me. I’m thinking a weekly basis won’t be too time consuming. Pick a day of the week, and I’ll @ you to remind you. #weeklytwitterstandup
Did last week:
✅ finally built script to track usage of my servers. It’s a python script uploaded to AWS lambda. The script pings my half-dozen servers for data usage and writes the data onto 1) a MySQL server hosted on AWS RDS, 2) BigQuery database, and 3) google sheets
✅ built a dashboard on server usage data using Tableau public. I now have the dashboard scrolling on my Life Flips app.

Thank you, Eric, for pointing out how many stocks are doing so well for us! Interestingly, no one said anything on Twitter last year when $TSLA was up roughly 50% from its low and 25% in the fourth quarter. #Tesla was a great diversifier when other stocks were getting crushed.
$TSLA during the past five years reminds me of $AMZN from 2004-2009. Investors/speculators laughed at worst or were baffled as we bought the stock when it tanked into the 20’s and 30’s in a 25-120 trading range. Trading recently at $2,000, #Amazon is one of my best stocks ever.
Now that its success is obvious in hindsight, most sell-side analysts remember that I bucked conventional wisdom and applauded the fact that Amazon was investing aggressively to capitalize on the inevitable shift to e-commerce and #AWS, at the expense of short-term profits.

Emerging Technology and Innovation session lead by Oliver Klein was excellent and the live demo of SageMaker and other AWS ML services was very engaging👏
Chandra shared the AWS contribution and strategy towards public sector made me appreciate the impact it is making on the larger vision of Digital India.. and New Delhi is well poised to host Public Sector summit for AWS the second country after US..

A few weeks back, we've noticed our snapshot bills to grow weirdly high.. after some debugging, I've found the snapshot billing and way snapshots stored as an interesting concept..
As the graph says, the usage vs snapshot billing isn't growing proportionally linear.. (1/n)
I decided to debug how snapshots are billed.. fundamentally, snapshots are block-level backups of EBS volumes.. since AWS can't see data inside your block, they read disk blocks occupied and take a copy of them and store them as objects in their s3.. (2/n)
Every time there's a data change inside your EBS volume, by nature of linux and hard disks, the new blocks is where data is written.. So, AWS knows there's change of data (this could be deletion of data too) and marks those blocks as the difference in data..thus incremental (3/n)

And we are fashionably late here in Israel. #zman #bnei #akiva #AWSSummit
Here we start - #snark #on #AWSSummit
Only 10000+ customers using #sagemaker - I would have expected a minimum of 10,001+ #AWSSummit

Feel free to like/❤ a topic you’d attend and @ people you think should submit a talk on this topic. I have A LOT of ideas so I’ll spread this out over a few days maybe a week depending on how this goes.
1/ an intro to @spockframework

- using #spockfw in a polyglot organization including any tips/tricks for integrating with other languages like #Java and #Kotlin
- the top things you wish you knew when you started using spock
- good testing practices in general

0/ OK, my turn for #AWS #reinvent tips, and I’ll just offer one (in multiple parts).

It’s this: Meet people and talk to them!

Here’s why: I do this and I *never fail* to learn something interesting.

Here’s how:
1/ Every day, there’s a free breakfast and free lunch provided by the conference. You can probably get better food outside in a Vegas joint, but don’t, go to the conference meal. Then…
2/ Pick a table using an algorithm that tries to maximize Number of People and Just Getting Started. Then pick people at random and say “Hi! Where are in from?” and find out what they’re working on.

1\n #Amazon has done much more for building and deploying #IoT devices in a secure and robust manner than any other ecosystem organization. Their focus? Help build and deploy more connected devices. If you are building connected devices, this summary report is for you:
2\n Both their arms #Alexa and #AWS offer solutions at both the ends: the device (h/w and s/w dev kits) and the cloud. So how does it help you, the device maker? Let's find out. Every tweet below is an Amazon solution. Let's start with Alexa first.
3\n Control via #Alexa 1: If you've built a cloud connected device, use the Alexa SmartHome Skill to link it to Alexa. Then users can asks Alexa to ctrl your device, which goes to Alexa cloud, then to your skill, then your cloud and finally to your device.…

As a guy who adores simplicity, I'm a huge fan of @webtaskio! They really simplified the typical #FaaS offering. Here's why 👇 (thread)
You can write your functions right in your browser by just visiting It features a simple code editor with exactly what you need. Nothing more, nothing less. You can try it now!
In this remote browser based session, unlike #AWS C9, you don't need to worry about the servers/os/env that is running your under-development functions. There's no terminal. You need to install an npm package? just add it from the UI.

Did you know that in #SQS you can only delay the delivery of a message by at most 15 minutes?…

If you wanted to use messaging for scheduling business activities overnight, end-of-week, or end-of-month, that can be a problem.
If you're using NServiceBus on top of SQS, we've solved that problem for you. By combining FIFO queues in #AWS with the natural delayed delivery of SQS, and appropriately bouncing messages between them, we can support arbitrarily long times.

Some people have asked me "why not AWS Step Functions instead?"

> AWS Step Functions makes it easy to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows.

When I tell people I am the founding PM on Lambda, the question I often get is how the idea for #AWS Lambda/#Serverless came about in the first place. The truth is, its way too hard to point to one person/event as the defining moment.
It took 100s of customer conversations notes from multiple AWS folks where they told us 1/all the things they wanted to minimize/ not do at all while building applications; 2/architectural patterns they were repeating and wanted a way to build into their development flow.
It took some serious leaps of faith and acceptance of risk from the people involved, and a constant iteration on what we wanted the final product to look like. This is where I first saw the AMZN "Working backwards" process in action and its brilliance in driving the right focus.

I initially found 51 accounts that all looked the same:
after doing some searching there are around 655 accounts in this bot net.
