New AWS Console functionality

If you have ever tried to keep up with AWS News and Product Announcements even for a subset of products, let me know how. While I try to keep monitoring, sometimes you accidentally see a new feature. I am not a fan of using GUI interfaces. I’m all about the CLI and APIs. However, one must always spin up the AWS Console to look at what new blurb is being presented in the 10+ database products to

AWS has started offering more in-depth recommendations, but you need to Install or update to the latest version of the AWS CLI to 2.15+ to see them programmatically.

About “Digital Tech Trek Digest”

Most days, I take some time early in the morning to scan my inbox newsletters, the news, LinkedIn, or other sources to read something new about professional and personal topics of interest. I turn what I read into actionable notes in a short, committed time window, summarizing what I learned, what I should learn and use, or what is of random interest. And thus my Digital Tech Trek.

Some of my regular sources include TLDR, Forbes Daily, ThoughWorks Podcasts, Daily Dose of Data Science and BoringCashCow. Also Scientific American Technology, Fareed’s Global Briefing, Software Design: Tidy First? by Kent Beck, Last Week in AWS, Micro Newsletter to name a few.
