Microsoft Teams is increasing in popularity across many teams nowadays. It has become a primary means of intra team communication for many technology teams. So it becomes useful if operational teams use Microsoft Teams as an alerting mechanism too. It will be useful if these dev or ops teams, who spend a good amount of time on Teams application, also get alerted about any deployed application events, on the same platform.
In this post I will be describing one of the ways to get application level alerts on a Microsoft Teams channel. As AWS is the most popular cloud platform now, I am taking example of sending AWS Cloudwatch alerts as messages to a Teams channel instead of an email.
This post is my solution walkthrough for the bonus Acloud guru challenge from the Cloud resume book by Forrest Brazeal. The book can be found Here. This challenge is a good learning path for deploying workloads on Kubernetes cluster and spinning up a Kubernetes cluster. This post will describe how I completed the challenge and my approach towards the challenge solution. My challenge solution provides a good learning experience for these technologies:
Kubernetes and deploying to Kubernetes
App Development (I used Python but in theory it can be anything)
Data analysis and visualization using Prometheus and Grafana
This post is my solution walkthrough for the Acloud Guru challenge to build an event driven ETL process. The challenge details can be found Here. I really like going through and solving these challenges since these give me a scope to learn so many things which are involved in completing the challenge. In this post I will describe my approach to the challenge and walk through step by step about deploying the solution. Hopefully this will help others get some pointers for the challenge and learn few things.
Recently I started reading about Chatops and it really intrigued me to learn more about it. It really fascinated me to see how easy it is now to setup alerting and be notified about operational stuff. While I was learning more, I thought why not explore the same on AWS and thats when I bumped onto AWS Chatbot.
In this post I will go through the basics of this AWS managed service called ‘Chatbot’ and demonstrate how quickly you can setup an alerting mechanism to Slack, monitoring an AWS Glue ETL job.
Recently I started reading about AWS Amplify and found it very interesting. I was very impressed to see how easily one can deploy a full stack React app (supports more frameworks) using the Amplify framework. So I started learning about it more and how it can be leveraged in real life scenarios.
This post is from my initial learning of the basic framework. The framework itself is vast and lots of options to explore. I took a part of the framework which will enable you to quickly stand up a React app if you want to use Amplify.
