☁️ 📖 Learn By Doing Volume #63 💻🔨

Here we are with another volume of the Learn By Doing newsletter. It's another shorter newsletter this week as I am heading out for a bit of a vacation. That said, this weeks articles are top notch as always.

There is a brief article that demonstrates how you can migrate your monolith web API from EC2/ECS to 100% serverless by leveraging Application Load Balancers in AWS. I also wrote a quick post last week that explores some common refactoring opportunities that are pretty universal. There is also an interesting cool find that looks to provide a decentralized alternative to Instragram.

Check out those great articles and many more in this 63rd volume. See you all next week!

☁️ Cloud

Hybrid Load Balancing traffic between EC2 and Lambda functions - useful API migration patternA quick article that dives into how you can migrate your monolith web app, route by route, from EC2 to AWS Lambda. It's a bit shorter than I would have liked but it's to the point. With the release of the ALB events in the Serverless Framework you can update your event source seamlessly in your existing templates.

🔨 Tools

python_autocomplete - A simple neural network for python autocompletionThis isn't the first project I have seen that makes use of machine learning in order to provide autocomplete for Python code, see Kite for an alternative. This, however, is the first open source project I have seen that lets you run the tests on your own.

The Three Most Common Refactoring Opportunities You Are Likely To EncounterI released this blog post last week after revisiting some old code I wrote years ago. When I opened the project I was amazed at all of the places that needed to be cleaned up. I dove right in and started doing what came naturally, which got me thinking, how do I already know to refactor the things that I am? Thus this post was born.

Data-Oriented Design EbookDesign patterns in code is almost always a popular subject. But, have you ever explored data oriented design? It's a very interesting take that changes the way we think about building our user experience. Check out this free ebook that dives into all of the details.

😎 Cool find of the week

Federated Image Sharing for EveryonePixelfed is a decentralized photo sharing platform that values privacy above just about everything else. It's an interesting take on an alternative to things like Instagram. I still think that the entry bar is very high for the normal consumer.
