As a small start up, we’re playing with lot of technologies and we try to choose the best ones. Okay, sometimes not because of money constraints, but we’re trying. One day, can’t remember when it was, we decided to go with AWS. Not just EC2 instances for Docker Cloud, but full stack. I mean API Gateway, Lambda, EC2, ECS, DynamoDB, etc. Counted them, AWS provides 51 services. Some of them are perfect, some of them still needs polishing, but they’re pretty good generally speaking.
I don’t know why people are so excited about Slack (or HipChat). I don’t like it and people often ask me why?
It’s fragile and kind of terrible. Let’s look at it. We have a function named lambda. It has one argument named action (enum with allowed values data, exception or timeout). First thing we would like to do is to validate input via schema.

Old posts are available in this repository. Not that I don’t like Jekyll and GitHub Pages. But the workflow is kinda crazy when I want to publish new post and the only device I have is my iPad. – This is no longer valid, all posts were imported here as well.
I’ll give it a try for a while and then I’ll merge them. Either on GitHub Pages or here. We’ll see.
I have a small utility named Status Quo and I would like to command it via
AppleScript. Lot of tutorials around, but they’re for much more complicated
cases. Here’s the simplified one.
