Newsletter martinmueller.dev 2022 week 2924th July 2022
This week was hot in Germany. Not just in terms of cool news around DevOps and more, it was physically hot :). My highlight of this week was the in-person AWS UG Meetup in Berlin. It was super amazing to see some AWS CDK friends in real :)!
In this weekly newsletter, I write a summary of posts that got my attention during the week. I center around topics AWS, DevOps, Architecture, AWS CDK, Serverless, Data Engineering, Data Analytics and much more.
If you like my content follow me on my usual spots to hang around:
