A year ago I was lucky enough to be part of the launch of #AWS Incident Manager which shipped as part of AWS Systems Manager.

It was an absolutely wild rollercoaster ride, here's a smattering of thoughts...


Amazon (and AWS by extension) is big on Ownership, one of the Amazon Leadership Principles - which means there is very little that is truly driven top down.

I led the team that built Incident Manager, but the real leaders are the team themselves - I was just there to help. 1/
The Incident Manager (IM) team was (and still is) comprised of multiple 2-pizza teams, each owning their own slice of IM end to end. This is an important concept - our devs own the product they are building, they own everything from planning through execution to ops. 2/

☁ You will likely encounter pushback when moving to the cloud. Moving to something new may seem risky and unnecessary to the developers. This requires a cultural shift.

💎 Here are some tips on how to tackle this problem.

#cloud #googlecloud #azure #aws
1. Sync with cross-functional teams early and often. Train them so they understand the benefits of the cloud and are comfortable and knowledgeable using it.
2. Help teams understand the benefits, the project's processes, the desired goals and outcomes.

What is CI/CD?

Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) are two approaches to software development that are designed to improve code quality and enable rapid delivery and deployment of code.

#DevOps #CICD #Cloud #Agile #Testing #Cloud #Linux #Security #ITjobs
A modern CI/CD pipeline in DevOps has build, test, and deploy stages-and aims to automate as many of the processes within these stages as possible.

1. Source Code: Changes to source code can trigger CI/CD tools to initiate the pipeline, or the CI/CD pipeline may be triggered
by automated scheduled work sessions or user-initiated workflows.
2. Build: The new code changes to applications are created and compiled to be prepared for the testing phase.

3. Testing: Testing automation via CI can save developers tremendous time and effort.

Container Registry Security controls you didn't know you needed. A 🧵 1/
Let's start with the basics. You need to scan your containers for vulns on the push. For that you need your registry to integrate with security scanners. Most registries support this out of the box. Some like @project_harbor even integrate with multiple scanners. Always 👍 2/
@project_harbor you need tag immutability. What if an attacker gets creds for your registry and commits container images with the tag "prod" that you use (well, for prod). you are in a world of 💩. Setting an immutable tag ensures that others can't commit to that specific "locked" tag 3/

Had a new hire start today who immediately pinged me to let me know that he was given admin access to his dev #AWS account and he probably shouldn't have that.

Nah man, we just care about good #devex. But how do we do it? 🧵
First off, we use AWS Organizations to manage our multi-account environment. Organizations has a feature called Security Control Policies (SCPs) which can limit max permissions for all accounts in your org. We use it to disable regions and services we don't use.
We use another service, Control Tower, to manage these rules and configure accounts when they're first created. Control Tower ensures that all our audit logs go to a central account and we can set up alerting for anomalous behavior. Each account also gets an initial budget.

DeFi Olympiads

⁍The spirit of experimentation in #DeFi lives on, but this time we can't go complaining to the Developers. @DefiOlympiads offers an opportunity to test new mechanisms and try to break them
⁍Players must use their TICKET tokens to collect as many MEDALs as possible. #Hacks and exploits will NOT be penalized. MEDAL holders will get proportional airdrops later when these new protocols launch. But If anyone annoys the developers, the 'toxicity bond' gets extended.
Decentralized Deep Learning

#Arweave 的话题度真的是好低啊,连推上搜话题都跳不出多少来,还是简单梳理一下最近看到的#Arweave 的技术总结吧。
1. #Arweave#Filecoin 基本一致的地方就是都由数百个链上节点去存储一个文件,主要不同在于 #Arweave 是预付制的,你要为自己的一次存储提前支付永久服务的费用。
2. #Arweave 有非常特殊的激励机制,保存有更稀缺文件的矿工会比其他矿工拥有更大的算力优势(因为其他的矿工需要消耗更多的算力解决PoW难题),所以用户会跟积极保存更为稀缺的数据。
3. #Arweave 具有极强的扩展性,可以将共识范式下的程序联动交互,使其业务数据都保存在一个区块链内,由 #Arweave 的检测器结算。譬如 #everpay 可以直接读取 #AMM 的存储数据。

I realized today one of the reasons I appreciate working for a system integrator. Last time this year I was training in #Scala and #Spark. Then, I was placed in a project using #python, #pandas, #pyspark and #sql. That ended 12/31/21 and I had a short break before joining...
a pilot project working with #terraform, #aws, #boto3 with #python, #informatica, #autosys and #shellScripting. Not to mention the increasing frequency of situations that are like "Here is some technology setup that you have never seen before, here is some rudimentary docs,...
Figure it out in 1 or 2 sprints, provide deliverable artifacts and documentation on the preexisting system AND the new artifacts. Thx, k. Bai!" Oh, and teammates you joined with, they all have a shit-ton of stuff, so don't expect replies to your msgs.

Cue: 1. panic, then...

Here's an wildly unpopular opinion: #kubernetes should die eventually.
My personal vendetta again k8s is the cost it demands to setup a decent set of nodes. Can I run a real app with multiple services at 10 - 50$/m ?
It's absurd but think about why we need containers
- it lets you deploy code without worrying about underlying platform
- it lets you enforce strict security controls and sandbox
- it lets you network your processes to function together
Luckily in 2020s we have a far better tech capable of all these and beyond:

Jian Wang, founder of $BABA cloud, recently published his book about his thoughts about cloud technology and how it will be as revolutionary as electricity.

If you don't have time to read it, here are my notes.

LONG tweet 🧵... h/t @bkaellner
1/ 🗒️Imperative to build trust with cloud customers

$PDD used AliCloud to scale its community group buying business in the early days. Now $PDD is valued at a $60 billion market cap and competing against Taobao Deals.
2/ If $BABA shutdown $PDD when it grew big enough to become a threat, all trust would be lost in the capability of the cloud.

Great thoughts & opinions in 👇 and in Jeremy's

To me, @awscloud should focus on providing a #Serverless adoption & application experience (AX) than simply improving DX by mixing a bit of UX and getting nowhere. 🧵
As a cloud prvoider and with the scale of services and adoption, for #AWS, it's difficult to play the balancing act.

Too few service cause frustration and too many services lead to confusion. Adding more new services is not always a healthy situation.
As Jeremy mentioned, the maturity of the existing services is crucial. He also beautifully described what a DX is in the cloud world. It's not about adding some UX and calling it DX.

🗣 De qué hablamos cuando hablamos de POLP? El “Principio del Menor Privilegio” es, quizá, uno de los conceptos más complejos de abordar en términos prácticos. Sí, también es la idea de que cualquier usuario, programa o proceso debe tener los privilegios mínimos necesarios. Hilo.

Great clip from Voigt lab explaining technical barriers to creating *reliable* cell programs ("regulatory networks") with HUNDREDS of genes (like🦠found in nature)

$DNA has chipped away at some of these, though it can still only design reliable programs with ~5-10 genes

^Barriers $DNA has chipped away at:

•Codebase has many well-characterized parts
•Software to string 1000's of design variations together

@Gen9Bio tech for synthesizing big pieces of 🧬 ("challenging")

•Methods for debugging cell programs (reporters)
Circa 2016, Voigt lab at MIT said the limit for cell programs ("regulatory networks") in academia was ~2-4 genes

Compare this with naturally-occurring cell programs that might have hundreds of genes

Watching @NetAppINSIGHT keynote? Me too. Here are my quick thoughts. A 🧵

IMO, #NetApp was the traditional on-premises #Storage vendor that moved faster to the #Cloud. They created the #DataFabric vision a few years ago and are delivering value today.

With ONTAP services available on #AWS, #Azure and #GoogleCloud, I can compare what #NetApp is doing with #Storage to what #VMware is doing with virtual machines: providing existing customers an easier path to #Cloud migration.

Really excited to see what our customers and partners do with the new #AWS Cloud Control API, a consistent way to manage (CRUDL) resources based on the #CloudFormation Registry.…

A 🧵 for some more context :)
When we launched the #CloudFormation Registry a couple of years ago, our vision was to reimagine how we solve service coverage in CloudFormation. We wanted to build it in a way that solves this use case for all AWS customers.
With Cloud Control API, everything that’s available in the Registry (including third party types!), are available with a consistent, simple interface. All resources get a uniform schema and interface, and builders can write once and leverage across all resources.
