Find Your Most Expensive Lines of Code – Amazon CodeGuru Is Now Generally Available

Bringing new applications into production, maintaining their code base as they grow and evolve, and at the same time respond to operational issues, is a challenging task. For this reason, you can find many ideas on how to structure your teams, on which methodologies to apply, and how to safely automate your software delivery pipeline.
At re:Invent last year, we introduced in preview Amazon CodeGuru, a developer tool powered by machine learning that helps you improve your applications and troubleshoot issues with automated code reviews and performance recommendations based on runtime data. During the last few months, many improvements have been launched, including a more cost-effective pricing model, support for Bitbucket repositories, and the ability to start the profiling agent using a command line switch, so that you no longer need to modify the code of your application, or add dependencies, to run the agent.

You can use CodeGuru in two ways:

Amplify Console – Hosting for Fullstack Serverless Web Apps

AWS Amplify Console is a fullstack web app hosting service, with continuous deployment from your preferred source code repository. Amplify Console has been introduced in November 2018 at AWS re:Invent. Since then, the team has been listening to customer feedback and iterated quickly to release several new features, here is a short re:Cap.
Instant Cache InvalidationAmplify Console allows to host single page web apps or static sites with serverless backends via a content delivery network, or CDN. A CDN is a network of distributed servers that cache files at edge locations across the world enabling low latency distribution of your web file assets.
Previously, updating content on the CDN required manually invalidating the cache and waiting 15-20 minutes for changes to propagate globally. To make frequent updates, developers found workarounds such as setting lower time-to-live (TTLs) on asset headers which enables faster updates, but adversely impacts performance. Now, you no

GitHub and Google reaffirm partnership with Cloud Build CI/CD tool integration

When Microsoft acquired GitHub for $7.5 billion smackeroos in June, it sent some shock waves through the developer community as it is a key code repository. Google certainly took notice, but the two companies continue to work closely together. Today at Google Next, they announced an expansion of their partnership around Google’s new CI/CD tool, Cloud Build, which was unveiled this week at the conference.
Politics aside, the purpose of the integration is to make life easier for developers by reducing the need to switch between tools. If GitHub recognizes a Docker file without a corresponding CI/CD tool, the developer will be prompted to grab one from the GitHub Marketplace with Google Cloud Build offered prominently as one of the suggested tools.

Should the developer choose to install Cloud Build, that’s where the tight integration comes into play. Developers can run Cloud Build against their code directly from GitHub, and the results

IBM acquisition strengthens its place in the API economy

IBM logo

The growth of mobile, web applications and the Internet of things has meant more use of APIs which is changing the way businesses operate and communicate. IBM forecasts that APIs will represent a $2.2 trillion opportunity by 2018.

One of the fastest growing development frameworks to support this new ‘API economy’ is Node.js and to help unite this developer community with enterprise clients, IBM has announced today the acquisition of StrongLoop, a leading provider of enterprise Node.js capabilities.

“Enterprises are focused on digital transformation to reach new channels, tap new business models, and personalize their engagement with clients,” says Marie Wieck, general manager, Middleware, at IBM Systems. “APIs are a critical ingredient. By bringing together StrongLoop’s Node.js capabilities to rapidly create APIs with IBM’s leadership in Java and API Management on our cloud platform, we are unlocking the innovation potential of two vibrant development communities”.

This acquisition means Node.js developers now have a richer, operating environment on IBM Bluemix, big blue’s platform-as-a-service offering. JavaScript ranked as the number one language for discussion and usage followed closely by Java in the RedMonk Programming Language Rankings. Java remains the leading language for web applications and transaction systems. Combining StrongLoop’s tools and services with IBM’s WebSphere and Java capabilities, IBM will help clients bridge Java and Node.js development platforms, which will enable them to extract greater value from their application investments.

“With this acquisition, the industry benefits from Node.js’ formal entry into the mainstream enterprise,” says Juan Carlos Soto, Chief Executive Officer of StrongLoop. “As leaders in the Node.js open community, we plan to further advance open, community-driven innovation coupled with global, enterprise class software and services offerings to grow client value in the API economy”.

More information on IBM’s acquistion of StrongLoop is available on the company’s website.
