It's not strictly Clojure related (though I've used Clojure in it before), but National Novel Generation Month 2015 just started: https://github.com/dariusk/NaNoGenMo-2015
I didn’t know this: > Amazon’s web services are now worth more than its entire retail operation – and growing three times as fast (from: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/nov/01/how-amazon-took-control-of-the-cloud-john-naughton)
@cfleming: a coworker of mine who went to re:invent recalled someone saying that amazon's computing resources are 10x that of all competitors, google, msft, etc combined
I actually like the look of lambda a lot - it has a lot of useful potential, for me at least.
I was pretty skeptical of lambda at first, but somehow I keep on thinking of uses for it, and somewhere along the way I was sold on it.
@bhagany: Yeah, I have a ton of use cases that I’m way too lazy to set up and maintain a server for, but would be trivial with Lambda and DynamoDB
@cfleming: yes, I'm actually working on that project right now. It's very small (a site I make for my mother-in-law ~9 years ago), but it's been an enjoyable learning experience.
@cfleming: no showstoppers so far! although my janky db will probably cause me headaches, but that's my own doing. It's basically last-write-wins, except applied to the whole (small) database.
I'm not, I was already learning a pretty good amount, and didn't want to bite off more. it's a transit-serialized datascript db, written to s3 on every data-munging request.
