New – Building a Continuous Integration Workflow with Step Functions and AWS CodeBuild

Automating your software build is an important step to adopt DevOps best practices. To help you with that, we built AWS CodeBuild, a fully managed continuous integration service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces packages that are ready for deployment.
However, there are so many possible customizations in our customers’ build processes, and we have seen developers spend time in creating their own custom workflows to coordinate the different activities required by their software build. For example, you may want to run, or not, some tests, or skip static analysis of your code when you need to deploy a quick fix. Depending on the results of your unit tests, you may want to take different actions, or be notified via SNS.
To simplify that, we are launching today a new AWS Step Functions service integration with CodeBuild. Now, during the execution of a state machine, you can start or stop a build, get build report summaries,

General Availability of UltraWarm for Amazon Elasticsearch Service

Today, we are happy to announce the general availability of UltraWarm for Amazon Elasticsearch Service.

UltraWarm, complements the existing Amazon Elasticsearch Service hot storage tier by providing less expensive storage for older and less-frequently accessed data while still ensuring that snappy, interactive experience that Amazon Elasticsearch Service customers have come to expect. Amazon Elasticsearch Service stores data in Amazon S3 while using custom, highly-optimized nodes, purpose-built on the AWS Nitro System, to cache, pre-fetch, and query that data.
There are many use cases for the Amazon Elasticsearch Service, from building a search system for your website, storing, and analyzing data from application or infrastructure logs. We think this new storage tier will work particularly well for customers that have large

Cengage and McGraw-Hill cancel merger plans

Cengage and McGraw-Hill Education’s goal of creating one giant educational publisher has been abandoned, the publishers announced yesterday.

The planned “merger of equals,” announced in May 2019, was supposed to be completed by March this year. But the process did not go as planned.

The U.S. Department of Justice took almost a year to review the merger and asked the publishers to sell off so many assets that the financial return on the deal diminished, said Michael Hansen, Cengage CEO, in a call to investors yesterday.

“We are disappointed by this outcome. A lot of people across both of our organizations dedicated a lot of time in the past year to try and make this happen,” Hansen said in the investor call.

The DOJ was rumored to have asked the publisher to divest assets worth around $175 million — right at the upper limit of what the companies said they were prepared to do in their
