LombaXMonday N° 2 – links and resources from the IT World

What is this? Every day I read a lot of articles about computer programming and languages, infrastructures, new technologies, quick tips, trends, architectures and so on. I read them immediately or put in my “read later” list. All my readings helped me to grow and learn new things…so why don’t share them with my readers? For this reason, I decided to publish and share, every monday, a list of the links I came accross during the past days.

Monitor your AWS CloudTrail events with Slack and GorillaStack – link

Although it is based on a commercial product, at the provided link you can find a free Slack Bot that will monitor all your AWS CloudTrail events and alert you when something happen. Personally,  I added some triggers to increase the security of our AWS Account: I get an alert when a user login to the AWS Console, when an AWS EC2 Instance is created, rebooted or terminated. It is very easy to install: after adding it to slack, a Cloudformation template that creates everything will be provided, basically an IAM Role, an S3 Bucket, a Lambda function and all the needed CloudTrail configurations are created automatically with a simple step-by-step procedure.

Expose your local development website over a public URL – link

So, you have created a brand new website and you want to show to your customer. But you haven’t yet deployed it to the hosting provider, it’s only available on your local machine via http://localhost. No worries, with ngrok you will be able to share it immediately, via a public URL, writing a simple command. No need to setup a VPN, and event supporting SSL.

Simply install it, write this in your terminal

ngrok http 80

and your site will be publicly available on an URL similar to this: http://xyza335.ngrok.io

What is CQRS? – link and link

Martin Fowler gives us a brief explanation of what is CQRS and its benefits. By splitting the model in two parts (one dedicated to the **query** and the other dedicated to the **command** part) structured applications with complex domains can have huge benefits. But be aware that all comes to a price…don’t over engineer 🙂


That’s all for today’s LombaXMonday, if you liked it, have any question or want to let me know that this article sucks, don’t hesitate to add a comment 🙂
