Hello!

Check out my new course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn the best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability.

Welcome to my blog! It’s Xmas and with so much time on my hands, I thought this might be as good a time to start a blog as any!

What am I gonna blog? Well, imagine this, you’re going through your favorite blogs/websites and you read something cool, but when it comes to a time you can actually apply it in your line of work you can’t remember where you read it in the first place!

This has happened to me so much I had started to simply bookmark everything I come across which I think might be useful later on, but that results in a rather long and disorganized list of bookmarks which doesn’t really make life any easier… so I’ve been meaning to start blogging things I learn (in a way that I can understand of course) and hopefully it’ll help others who are in a similar position as me.
