In this post, I cover a recently launched ebook about Amazon Web Services, The Good Parts Of AWS. Authored by ex AWS engineers with 15 years of combined experience. It makes you realize about the features and services you would be foolish not use and a lot more.
In such a short span of time, over 1725 copies of the book have already been sold! If you have not read this book, consider looking at it over here.
Authors of The Good Parts Of AWS
Authors Daniel Vassalo and John Pschorr together have worked with AWS for 15 years. They have worked on all types of web applications, right from small projects to massive services running on 1000s of servers.
Both, Daniel Vassallo and John Pschorr have been using Amazon web services right from the days when AWS had no web console and just 3 services. They also contributed in building small part of AWS itself.
What do you learn?
This is not a typical reference book of some sorts. Instead, the authors want to make you realize which all are the AWS features you would be foolish not to use. You get to know about the features for which you almost never have to look at the alternatives.
This 173 pages book helps you make the right decisions when things get overwhelming. Right from choosing a programming language, application framework, database, cloud vendor, software dependencies etc.
AWS alone has around 150 services and each one has its own features and options, at time overlapping each other. Through this book, the Authors reveal the technique they use themselves to make reliable tech choices. Though this technique is for Amazon Web Services, but can also be used in making any other technical decisions.
The authors are only covering the topics they have first hand experience with. You will not find this information in AWS documents.
“This book is worth its weight in gold for the opening chapter alone, which is about how to make technology choices. The AWS guidance is excellent too. Recommended!”Brian Scanlan
