Episode 46 - Updates for the Modern Builder by AWS TechChat published on 2019-05-09T12:09:51Z Join Shane and Dr. Pete as they get their inner geek on and cover a few significant announcements that occurred last month that help the modern builders. They cover some quick announcements around Amazon EC2. Amazon EC2 T3a instances are now a thing, and what’s more, our A1 instances are finding their way into Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS with the latter being in preview. They then set the scene around containers, romanticized about the past and how they differ from Virtual Machines before introducing AWS AppMesh. AWS AppMesh is a service mesh that provides application-level networking to make it easy for your services to communicate with each other, before rounding out the show by introducing the AWS Toolkit for VS Code which provides an integrated one-stop experience for developing and debugging serverless applications in AWS Lambda and AWS SAM.
