In part 2 of this series, I review the application requirements and create a proposed cloud native architecture based on AWS Amplify.Continue reading “Migrating a Legacy App to Cloud Native – Part 2”
In this post, I begin exploring how to migrate my SqAC app to be an AWS cloud native application. I give some background about the current app architecture, consider lift & shift and serverless approaches to migration, before declaring my intended approach. The next part in the series will present and discuss the new architecture.Continue reading “Migrating a Legacy App to Cloud Native – Part 1”
I haven’t written about SqAC in this blog for over a year. In that time though, there have been six releases and it has reached version 1.0 feature completeness! See the release notes within the news section of the app itself: https://sqac.fanello.net/#/home/news

See you in a square!

Caller school was an exciting and mind-opening experience for a wannabe. If you are serious about being a caller, you can’t go without it.
My work on SqAC may slow down a bit, as I focus a bit more on improving my own skills rather than the computer’s. I certainly intend to continue developing SqAC as the tool that I envision for it to become, but I have to balance that development time with growing my own calling and teaching skills.
Until the next post…
Square Auto-Choreographer (SqAC, pronounced ‘squawk’) is an app to assist a caller, or even a square dancer, in calling patter. Continue reading “Introducing Square Auto-Choreographer”
