Summary

Do you have some spare time? Can you figure out an easier way to do something? Then, why not build some software?!
Today, we’re talking to Ian Mckay of Kablamo, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) consultancy. He is the author of Console Recorder, which is a browser extension that records your actions in the Management Console to convert them into SDK code and infrastructure as code templates.
Some of the highlights of the show include:

Timeline to build Console Recorder
Infrastructure as Code: How to code repeatedly without starting over and take ownership of what you built by hand
AWS vs. Individual Achievements: People asked AWS for years to create something to record console click-throughs that Ian did in his spare time
Console Recorder support for any browser that exports Web extensions
Sharp edges of what’s expected of Console Recorder to speed up development
Management Console’s unreadable responses require reverse engineering
Console Recorder: Recommended use cases and areas
How to alleviate security concerns with Console Recorder
Changes to Management Console that may break things
Ian’s past, present, and future projects and products
Words of Wisdom: If you don’t like something, just fix it yourself
