This is something I got wrong went I scaffolded out my first CodeStar AWS Lambda pipeline and went to add new environments. To make your project work with AWS CodeStar and CodePipeline you basically need a buildspec.yml and a template.yml file in the root of your project, but that's really it. Then when you connect your source code repository to CodePipeline it will look for these files (or whatever names you have configured for them in the AWS Codepipeline settings) to build and deploy your project.
I've recently been building web applications with front-end frameworks like React, Reagent, and Angular 2. I was recently working on an Angualr 2 project and thought, "man, this sure seems like a ton of lines of code", but had no concrete evidence to prove it. After a quick google search I came to this stack overflow question, and the awesome answer(s) therein.
I grew up on "Algol" style languages like Java, C++, and ActionScript 3 where one of the first things you learn about is the concept of a class, a blueprint for an object. I guess I'm too young to remember a lisp world without Clojure so at first I was amazed that you could even have a programming language that didn't based its foundational architectural patterns around classes or object use classes! I just today was working on a project and found it refreshingly simple to just write some functions in a namespace so I could require and call them from another file. In this post we'll take a look at how to we import functions in a ClojureScript project using the build tool leiningen without classes or objects.
In my new role I've been given the opportunity to really dig into React, learn a lot about it, and build an application with it. I had previously used Ngrx in Angular 2 so it was interesting to go back to the original Redux library after having used the Angular step-cousin. After a few small roadblocks the application is progressing rather smoothly, and I have to say I think Redux is pretty dang awesome.
It seems a little crazy to think about an application as just a reflection of the data, but I believe it is actually true. I've been building front-end browser applications for a long time, but it wasn't until I started getting into Clojure and ClojureScript (which was pretty recently) that the lightbulb went off for me.
