Android 7.1 To Roll Out To Nexus Devices in December; Preview Goes Out This Month

Google said today it will roll out Android 7.1 to a range of Nexus devices — including Nexus 6 — later this year (December). A developer preview of Android 7.1 will be available to enthusiasts later this month. From an Engadget report: They also confirmed what 7.1 will bring to the table. Aside from Daydream VR support, most of the new features focus on giving developers more options to spruce up their apps’ functionality. First, they can now make custom shortcuts, much like the ones popping up in iOS via 3D Touch. There’s also support for image keyboards so users can insert stickers or GIFs within apps. For carriers and calling apps, 7.1 has APIs for multi-endpoint calling and telephony configuration. Lastly, developers can now route users to a Settings page to free up storage space by deleting unused files.

US Military Is Looking At Blockchain Technology To Secure Nuclear Weapons

Lasrick quotes a report from Quartz: Blockchain technology has been slow to gain adoption in non-financial contexts, but it could turn out to have invaluable military applications. DARPA, the storied research unit of the U.S. Department of Defense, is currently funding efforts to find out if blockchains could help secure highly sensitive data, with potential applications for everything from nuclear weapons to military satellites. The report adds: “The case for using a blockchain boils down to a concept in computer security known as ‘information integrity.’ That’s basically being able to track when a system or piece of data has been viewed or modified. In DARPA’s case, blockchain tech could offer crucial intelligence on whether a hacker has modified something in a database, or whether they’re surveilling a particular military system. This September, DARPA, which stands for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (the agency helped create the internet, among other things),

Going Serverless: Migrating an Express App to AWS API Gateway and AWS Lambda

Brett AndrewsSoftware Development Engineer
Amazon API Gateway recently released three new features that simplify the process of forwarding HTTP requests to your integration endpoint: greedy path variables, the ANY method, and proxy integration types. With this new functionality, it becomes incredibly easy to run HTTP applications in a serverless environment by leveraging the aws-serverless-express library.
In this post, I go through the process of porting an “existing” Node.js Express application onto API Gateway and AWS Lambda, and discuss some of the advantages, disadvantages, and current limitations. While I use Express in this post, the steps are similar for other Node.js frameworks, such as Koa, Hapi, vanilla, etc.
Modifying an existing Express application
Express is commonly used for both web applications as well as REST APIs. While the primary API Gateway function is to deliver APIs, it can certainly be used for delivering web apps/sites (HTML) as

A Different Approach to (AWS) CLI

Jan 2, 2016

For a user of Amazon Web Services, quickly viewing a dashboard of all resources
is not straightforward. If using a web browser, the session won’t persist for
more than a day and one will have to re-authenticate every day. If using AWS
CLI, then he/she might not remember the exact command (was it
describe-key-pair or describe-keypair or describe-keypairs?) but even if
they do, the output is a not-so-readable JSON. For viewing virtual machines,
you might not want to see hundreds of lines of detail.
Maybe you just wanted to see the IP of the VM so that you can SSH into it. Or
maybe you just wanted to quickly create a virtual machine to test something: do
you remember all the parameters you need to specify for instance creation? And
don’t forget that you will need to specify the AMI ID of the image, even if you
know exactly the operating system name and version.

There is no
