Big updates for AWS including EKS and easier upgrades, RDS and developer tooling to save you money!

Published Dec 22, 2023
Here’s my final video of AWS news and updates for 2023, We have updates to Amazon EKS with my favourite announcement being tooling to help you upgrade between kubernetes versions easily without hitting API issues!
There's a new region launch in Calgary Canada and a tonne of features for Amazon RDS including integration with Amazon Bedrock from Aurora Postgres letting you build Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAGS) easily and even query ML via SQL!
We also look at some of the developer tools and how they are evolving to make your life easier and cheaper to develop before deploying to the cloud, including new ways to run Amazon Linux on your own hardware either using KVM, which is great for linux or using VMware. There's qcow2 and OVA images available for download.
DynamoDB local also gets updates and now has ReturnValuesOnConditionCheckFailures and table deletion prevention.
Then I ask AWS for open source access to cloud9 IDE :)
