Machine to Machine Authentication with Cognito and Serverless

Thumbnail
Introduction Authentication is a problem almost every IT professional has had to deal with at some point in time. Doing it right isn’t easy. What I mean by right is balancing usability and security. AWS attempts to solve this problem with AWS Cognito, which is quite nice of them, because Authentication is exactly the undifferentiated heavy lifting most customers don’t want to deal with themselves. Unfortunately authentication is still a complex topic and Cognito is an abstraction layer for it, which makes it easier, but it’s a fairly low level abstraction conceptually in that you still need to understand most of the concepts involved in order configure it correctly.

Dissecting Serverless Stacks (IV)

After we figured out how to implement a sls command line option to switch between the usual behaviour and a way to conditionally omit IAM in our deployments, we will get deeper into it and build a small hack on how we could hand over all artefacts of our project to somebody who does not even know SLS at all.

R can not be pushed in Production - deprecated!

Running Shiny on Fargate Some guys still thinking R cannot be used at scale or only in a limited way. I still do not understand the reason why people are like this. Since my last post about AWS Batch, which is a Docker-based service within AWS, which enables you to work with R, I spend a lot of time with Fargate, another Docker-based service on AWS. This time my boss wanted a BI app.

Dissecting Serverless Stacks (III)

The third post of this series showed how to make IAM statements an external file, so we can deploy that one but still work with the sls command. It still involved commenting out things in the configuration, so this post will show how to solve that issue.
