Mitchell Hamline to teach completely online in the fall

After consulting with faculty and staff, President and Dean Anthony Niedwiecki announced the decision to teach remotely this fall in an email on Friday, July 24.
The text is below:
 
Dear faculty and staff,
I shared with you on Monday my growing concern about holding some classes on campus this fall. It was clear from your feedback that many of you share those concerns. I write today to announce that we will be teaching completely online in the fall. A decision about the spring will be made later this year.
I recognize and respect that some of you strongly prefer an in-person learning environment, and I apologize for the change in direction. Why are we switching gears a couple of months after we announced we would teach partly on campus? In short: The virus spread has not moderated in the way we thought and in fact appears to be worsening, and because of our

New – Create Amazon RDS DB Instances on AWS Outposts

Late last year I told you about AWS Outposts and invited you to Order Yours Today. As I told you at the time, this is a comprehensive, single-vendor compute and storage offering that is designed to meet the needs of customers who need local processing and very low latency in their data centers and on factory floors. Outposts uses the hardware that we use in AWS public regions
I first told you about Amazon RDS back in 2009. This fully managed service makes it easy for you to launch, operate, and scale a relational database. Over the years we have added support for multiple open source and commercial databases, along with tons of features, all driven by customer requests.
DB Instances on AWS Outposts Today I am happy to announce that you can now create RDS DB Instances on AWS Outposts. We are launching with support for MySQL and PostgreSQL,

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:

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.
This new low-cost storage tier provides fast, interactive analytics on up to three petabytes of log data at one-tenth of the cost of the current Amazon Elasticsearch Service storage tier.
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

AWS Chatbot – ChatOps for Slack and Chime

Last year, my colleague Ilya Bezdelev wrote Introducing AWS Chatbot: ChatOps for AWS to launch the public beta of AWS Chatbot. He also participated in the re:Invent 2019 Launchpad and did an in-depth AWS Chatbot demo:

In his initial post, Ilya showed you how you can practice ChatOps within Amazon Chime or Slack, receiving AWS notifications and executing commands in an environment that is intrinsically collaborative. In a later post, Running AWS commands from Slack using AWS Chatbot, Ilya showed how to configure AWS Chatbot in a Slack channel, display CloudWatch alarms, describe AWS resources, invoke a Lambda function and retrieve the logs, and create an AWS Support case. My colleagues Erin Carlson and Matt Cowsert wrote about AWS Budgets Integration with Chatbot and walked through the process of setting up AWS Budget alerts and arranging for notifications from within AWS Chatbot. Finally, Anushri Anwekar showed how to Receive

Amazon Elastic Container Service now supports Amazon EFS file systems

It has only been five years since Jeff wrote on this blog about the launch of the Amazon Elastic Container Service. I remember reading that post and thinking how exotic and unusual containers sounded. Fast forward just five years, and containers are an everyday part of most developers lives, but whilst customers are increasingly adopting container orchestrators such as ECS, there are still some types of applications that have been hard to move into this containerized world.
Customers building applications that require data persistence or shared storage have faced a challenge since containers are temporary in nature. As containers are scaled in and out dynamically, any local data is lost as containers are terminated. Today we are changing that for ECS by launching support for Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) file systems. Both containers running on ECS and AWS Fargate will be able to use Amazon Elastic File System (EFS).

Mitchell Hamline suspends in-person classes through April 3

Update, March 12, 2020
In response to health concerns related to COVID-19, Mitchell Hamline School of Law is suspending in-person classes through April 3. There are no known cases of COVID-19 at Mitchell Hamline, but the school is taking this step to help mitigate the effects of the disease on our campus. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will make decisions for April and beyond as more information becomes available.

Students in Mitchell Hamline’s on-campus programs are currently on spring break. Instead of returning to campus for classes on Monday, March 16, those students will resume classes remotely starting on Wednesday, March 18. Though there will not be classes in the building, the building will remain open for students to use the library or other facilities. The only exception would be students who recently traveled to an area with widespread outbreaks of the disease or who are showing signs
