If you're looking for something to read this weekend, the chapter about "Simple queues without SQS" is available. It shows how to run background jobs without setting up an SQS queue (Lambda to Lambda). I documented retry settings, and pros/cons against SQS

Couscous 1.8.0 is released: it is compatible with Symfony 5 and (finally!) supports installing extra packages via NPM/Yarn. Thanks and !

Integrating those demos was a fun challenge: I had to make the AWS simulation engine generic so that I could include it inside the landing page. It's a set of TypeScript classes + VueJS component. Here is how I create the SQS scenario and include it via VueJS:

I would say Bref is a bit lower level level, but you have more flexibility and freedom. For example, you can create event-driven architectures with EventBridge, create non-HTTP Lambda functions, wire AWS services together, etc. Those are probably more advanced use cases.

Hi, very happy it's helping! At the moment I haven't used CDK that much (only a few tests, I found some details quite frustrating), so I wouldn't be able to teach much about it. But I've been following more and more, I think it is promising, maybe in the future!

ARE WE DONE YET? Almost! Only small adjustments in this section: font changes for consistency, and I adjusted the line length for better readability.

Next, let's improve the "examples" section. I added a code screenshot (that you can click to zoom, not perfect I know) and a list of real serverless application examples included in the course, namely: - Journal: - Status page:

Next was a big challenge: more demos! advised to double down on the "visual" aspect. I embedded actual extract from the course, to provide more context for the interactive animations. It's also a way to preview the content. Try it out live too:

Rob encouraged me to put a larger photo of myself (and use a different one, since there's already my face in the header). That also solved another problem: the number of words per line was too high (the lines were too wide).

I changed the title font: it seemed like nobody liked it (well, except me). was skeptical as well, so that was the signal to finally do something about it. Don't tell anyone but I still use that font inside the course…

Here we have our final version of the header. The visual hierarchy is 👌 and the manifesto is more visible. At this point, I also changed the "Coming soon" into "Get early access" because I decided to make the course available again 🎉 Now let's check out the rest of the page.

Finally some big header changes! This is not the final version though. I was very torn with that change: the hierarchy is much clearer, I loved it yet some parts sucked (e.g. the manifesto is below the fold). Also hated it and she's right like 90% of the time…

Some visual improvements. I find it crazy how these little things can make the final thing more polished. You can also tell I still haven't changed the header structure: usually you do the finishing touches AFTER doing the main structure 😅

Next, let's add some quotes. I made the course available in early access so I was lucky enough to have existing customers, and happy ones :D

"This is supposed to be a visual course, make the header more exciting and visual" Rob told me. So I worked on a little header animation using the same blocks I use in the interactive simulations and demos. There's also an easter egg if you hover my photo 🤫

That new header wasn't good enough because the hierarchy was off. I wanted you to read the manifesto, and then the big title, but the eyes are drawn to the bigger/bolder text first. Notice I added my name + photo too, per Rob's advice.
