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.
Since I’m liking git more and more by the day, with tools such as SmartGit and GitFlow making the task of managing even a complex branching model a relatively easy task, I’ve decided to move my Simple Speed Tester project over to github!
Simple Speed Tester is a very simple framework I wrote to help me run benchmarks and is used to power my JSON and binary serializers benchmarks. It takes cares of some of the orchestration that you tend to do when running benchmarks, e.g.:
- repeating a test multiple times
- time the individual runs
- ignore the min and max runs and use the rest to calculate a meaningful average
It’s intended to be really easy to use (see examples here) and for one and only one use case – help you speed test a specific piece of code!
If you’re like me and like to run your own benchmarks then check it out, you can also install it via Nuget.
I specialise in rapidly transitioning teams to serverless and building production-ready services on AWS.
Are you struggling with serverless or need guidance on best practices? Do you want someone to review your architecture and help you avoid costly mistakes down the line? Whatever the case, I’m here to help.
Check out my new course, Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! In this course, you will learn best practices for working with AWS Lambda in terms of performance, cost, security, scalability, resilience and observability. Enrol now and enjoy a special preorder price of £9.99 (~$13).
Are you working with Serverless and looking for expert training to level-up your skills? Or are you looking for a solid foundation to start from? Look no further, register for my Production-Ready Serverless workshop to learn how to build production-grade Serverless applications!
