🆕 Video Course Out Now: Rapid Docker on AWS

Amazon Web Services in Action Second Edition is in the works

Andreas Wittig – 25 Sep 2017

We released our book Amazon Web Services in Action in September 2015. But AWS didn’t rest on its laurels. Every day, new features are released that can make your life easier. It’s time to revise our book so you can continue to build effective solutions with the latest features. We’re excited to share the first revised chapters of our book with you.

Amazon Web Services in Action, Second Edition

We will revise all existing fourteen chapters, add three new chapters about Lambda, EFS, and ElastiCache, and we switch from JSON to YAML in all CloudFormation examples.

I’m an independent consultant, technical writer, and programming founder. All these activities have to do with AWS. I’m writing this blog and all other projects together with my brother Michael.

In 2009, we joined the same company as software developers. Three years later, we were looking for a way to deploy our software—an online banking platform—in an agile way. We got excited about the possibilities in the cloud and the DevOps movement. It’s no wonder we ended up migrating the whole infrastructure of Tullius Walden Bank to AWS. This was a first in the finance industry, at least in Germany! Since 2015, we have accelerated the cloud journeys of startups, mid-sized companies, and enterprises. We have penned books like Amazon Web Services in Action and Rapid Docker on AWS, we regularly update our blog, and we are contributing to the Open Source community. Besides running a 2-headed consultancy, we are entrepreneurs building Software-as-a-Service products.

We are available for projects.
