EventBus Mesh

I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot lately when bringing EventBridge’s EventBus into some applications. On the current projects I’m working on with existing code, I’ve said 100 times, if EventBridge existed when I started them, I wouldn’t have so much SNS->SQS based code lying around. But such is life when working in evolving tech. Enter the EventBus Mesh


Subscribe SNS to EventBridge Pipes

Legacy Serverless to New Serverless

I’ve been thinking and working hard on how I can start to introduce EventBridge and Pipes into some of my existing applications. Unfortunately, I have SNS in front of a lot of my service code and you can’t natively subscribe SNS to EventBridge Pipes. So I’ve started pondering this idea of how to integrate Legacy Serverless Applications into an ecosystem as new features are developed with more modern Serverless concepts. What I really want is a way to connect SNS to EventBridge Pipes.


BatchGetItem with Golang

I haven’t had to use the Batch API a great deal over the past few years. When thinking more on it, it’s not that I have anything against the API, it is just that I never had a reason to work with it. However, over the past couple of months I saw that I’d used it twice in a project and with good success. My Golang and DynamoDB content has been doing well so I figured there might be some appetite for this one. And with all that said, I wrote this article highlighting how to use DynamoDB’s BatchGetItem with Golang.


Common AWS CLI commands and explanations

I tend to lose track of some of the commands or things I run often and by the time I think to script or alias something, I’ve long sense forgotten it. Then I end up running history | grep -i <some phrase> hoping that it’s in my history. The point of this article is just to document and capture some the common AWS CLI commands that I use pretty often.


Parsing a Parquet file with Golang

I know it’s 2023, but you can’t get away from processing files. In a world of Events, APIs and Sockets, files still exist as a medium for moving data around. And a very common one at that. In recent years I’ve found myself dealing with Apache Parquet format files. And more specifically I often end up dealing with them coming out of AWS S3. If you are a consumer at all of the AWS DMS product when replicating, you will find out that parquet format is a great way to deal with your data as its designed for efficient storage and retrieval. There aren’t too many options for parsing a parquet file with Golang, but I’ve find a library I really enjoy and the article below will describe how to make the best use of it.
