At binx.io we do not believe in classic, classroom training for IT professional. We know that most IT professionals learn on the job and it is hard for them to spend 5 days in a class room.
That is why we invented the concept of High Intensity Training modules. Each module takes between 2-4 hours and consists of a short but complete introduction into the subject, followed by a series of hands-on training exercises using Instruqt. The exercises simulate real-life scenarios and will teach best practices while doing it.
We can mix-and-match modules to deliver a training program specifically suited for your specific situation. The modules can be planned separately in-house. After each module, the students will be able to apply the knowledge and experience obtained directly in practice.
Almost any AWS service can be fully controlled using the AWS API, for this we strongly recommend the use of boto3 (Python SDK). The problem is, that there exist some administrative tasks for which there is no public API, and there exist some AWS tasks that still require the AWS Account Root User. For example when creating a new account in an AWS Organization, there are some things that you are unable to do using the documented APIs. In this talk I’ll show how you can use Coto for these tasks, and a little background because programming with AWS SDKs is interesting.
When you run a system in production, you need to be aware of what is happening. Metrics, logs and traces can help with that. There is a very popular book about Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) that proposes to focus on the four golden signals: Latency, Traffic, Errors, Saturation. In this lab we will explore how we can monitor these signals out of the box with Istio on Google Kubernetes Engine.
During the week of AWS re:Invent there were over 100 announcements made. In this power hour, I’m on a mission to highlight as many as possible.
