In 2019, &computers hosted the kickback of the decade...

The AR try-on for GOAT app. First reaction was “this is dumb af” but it’s actually kinda fun 🥳

For context it would be the piece labeled "Bars API Lambda" that would benefit from provisioned concurrency roll out... for anyone who has used the CLI tool I would hope this means less request timeouts

Earlier this month AWS announced Provisioned Concurrency for Lambdas

We're going to try and use it to speed up response time for the Bars API

More project ideas in the pipeline 💡

Stay tuned ✍🏿

If you hate your users, give them an experience that analogs that of booking a flight with Spirit 😤

@andcomputers they said for under $100 (in hardware). But a bunch of hours tryna get it to work in a minimal power environment so it’s not thatttt easy but still. Stay vigilant.

@andcomputers
You’ve got mail 😈

Lmao this reminds me of Meet the Parents & the spy bear 🤣🤣

@andcomputers *not as a developer* just as someone who uses software really.

@andcomputers most companies have a conflict of interest when it comes to actually publishing or sharing any vulnerabilities that get found. Which means in a way universal learning are stymied when they occur in organizational vacuums. But obviously entities don’t want their IP just out and about for people to replicate but.. just something to think about as a developer 👾

@andcomputers this is why open source software is so powerful. Complex projects with large attack surface need to be easily vettable/explored/exploited, open source lets you crowd-research potential issues.

@andcomputers they covered “no interaction” vulnerabilities, some disconcerting issues within Boeing 787 software, Encryption implementation bugs, and algorithmic complexity Denial of Service from bad user inputs in things like password strength estimators (ironic) and pdf viewers (ubiquitous)

WIRED this month is all about some of the provocative (read: frightening) presentations of vulnerabilities that were recently presented at a couple big cyber security conferences this year. 🧐

Sorry to nerd out but I just reviewed some code with an asynchronous recursive call. Serverless architectures give way to some really interesting design patterns. Haven’t decided if they’re typically over complicated or simple & elegant. Have seen somewhere in between most of the time. For small projects (like some of the free open source shit on the blog) I’m pretty much in love with it.
