I have to say, I'm impressed with myself. I managed to pull off another livestream this past Friday. Another 90 minutes of me, slowly walking you through building a generative service on AWS. It was fun, and I even decided to make custom thumbnails like the one below. They need a little work, but one thing at a time.
I can feel the show beginning to turn into a lengthy course in building with Go on AWS. It's what I had imagined from the start, yet a little slower and highly detailed. This last one, I actually felt a little pressure toward the end to finish up what I wanted to cover within 90 minutes. I didn't quite make it, so this Friday I intend to get back on the livestream horse and pick up where we left off.
This week, we will go over deploying our generative service to AWS, adding the ability to pass unique identifiers as parameters. We will also discuss performance and cost concerns, and try and tackle some of those issues by picking from a number of common strategies. We will get a little taste of Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon CloudFront as well. It should be a h00t!
I also made a few minor technical changes to the stream. 1. I switched to using StreamYard instead of OBS. It seems much simpler and more powerful. 2. I am going to start "multi-casting" this Friday and will do the live stream on both Twitch and YouTube at the same time. I realized that Twitch only lets me save shows for 7 days before they are deleted, and YouTube seems like a more natural fit for the content. So, I guess I'm a YouTuber now! You'll still be able to watch on Twitch if that's your thing, but al the archives will be on YouTube.
