Setting up a streaming platform
Getting started Okay so let’s get straight to it - this is what we are trying to achieve: AWS Workspaces So firstly, you’ll want to get yourself an AWS GraphicsPro Windows Workspace. These are quite powerful instances with 16 vCPU’s, 122 gig of RAM and a GPU with 8 gig of video memory. WARNING: these things are expensive, they’re either $1,232 per month in the Sydney region or $81 up front and $14.34 per hour so you’ll want to use them sparingly!!! Things you need to install Download some media onto your Workspace VLC + NDI Setup OBS.Ninja Streamlabs for OBS Download some media onto your Workspace It’s important to have a few bits of media on your workspace to help with doing some nice scenes with OBS - you will get what I’m talking about when we get to that part.

Exploring the Great Barrier Reef
Exploring the Great Barrier Reef We kicked off any great family holiday with plenty of excitement and a bit of relief that we managed to get through airport security in time. 2 nights in Port Douglas Port Douglas was a beautiful spot with a lovely beach, a massive Sunday Markets as well as plenty of forests close by to explore. A quick stay in Cairns We stayed at the Shangri-La and had a great view of the marina from the hotel. Off to Green Island Green Island was super fun and such a beautiful spot to connect with nature. Day trip to the Outer Reef Definitely one of the funner aspects was going to the outer reef - an hour boat ride for some really good snorkelling and scuba diving. Back in Cairns and then off to Sydney And as quickly as we started our journey, we were headed back to Sydney - it was a bunch of fun though and we really enjoyed it! ......
ALB to Lambda with Auth0 authentication
ALB to Lambda with Auth0 authentication I’ve put together a cloudformation template to create an application load balancer that points to a lambda function which returns a simple HTML page. When you connect to it, it requires you to authenticate via Auth0. I hope you enjoy it! A special mention to s0enke for the ALB SAM Lambda template as well as sandrinodm for the securing an ALB with Auth0 blogpost - both helped a great deal to quickly put this together.
