"That. We also we use radius to Q authenticate from our Lennox servers back to our window service here on premise, so we then configure radius on the servers are used can log in with their same username and password that they log into machines here, which then I've been at the local users who should have access to the box. Next up is I install code deploy. Which is the deployment tool that we use from AWS to actually deploy the code on the servers. So this trapping ask doesn't deploy code. But it gets all of the tools onto the server that are needed to deploy the code. And then we let those tools do that. 'cause that's what they do this. And then finally cloud watch logs. We install that just for sending system. Logs to cloud watch for later analysis. In. There's a section at the bottom where we kind of do some bullying logic tests. If what kind of server it is so based on the tag on the server the test server, we may install some other packages that don't get on production. His one of our other applications, for instance, one of our applications has post presence old on it. So we have to sell the post libraries for that server, but not really anywhere else. So rather than creating a whole separate script for that serve. I added some logic into this to detect if this is that server install this. And that's pretty much. That's awesome. And I think I can I don't think there's anything there's probably a few things that need to scrub out of here. But I could share this listeners wonderful if they want to get head start on doing something like this themselves. There's just a few things I have the scrub out of this that are kinda secret. But I was just about to say that just reading that script. I think generated a large section for our show notes. But yes, I think it's probably share the script. But yeah, we'll definitely do that as a gift or something in the show notes of short a check that out listeners because Justice, but a lot of work into this definitely want you to be able to read the benefits from it. So we mentioned how experienced Justin is with AWS. And so I'd love to wrap up the show by asking him. What is the coolest thing that you're currently working on? Well, I guess that depends on everyone's interpretation of cool 'cause I've got through projects right now. In eighty minutes. I'm working on. That are big the first one is that which is really big is were currently in the process of migrating our CRM application, which is the main business application that we have here. It's basically our entire business to the cloud, which has been very challenging definitely probably the most interesting thing to a lot of people, but trying to fit a legacy application into modern architecture is quite a challenging thing to do. In. There were quite a few hurdles along the way. I just found that really rewarding to be able to. I mean, we're pretty close right now making that happen. We're about two months away from going live AWS Indo excited about that. I'm ready to be done. But it was it was really fun rewarding to to kind of get there. I learned a lot. And then the other thing that's probably a little more fun for everyone else is working with the deep lens camera to develop a kind of a facial recognition application long-term goals of that would be to maybe do ticketless entry at venues. So that people could basically walk in in your face is your ticket essentially, you show up to the show with nothing you walk through a special gate has a camera. And when it sees you at knows that you're supposed to be there for the show and kinda just lights up green light. And you pass on through concept of that. We've got a camera sitting in our in our office. Right. We're doing this podcast right now. And. It's Bisley watching people as they walk in the door. And then if it recognizes that person at greets them on slack. If it doesn't recognize that person, it sends a message to a slack channel to basically train the model who that person is it's we've had some success with it. I think what we've realized we're running into a kind of a limitation of the lens hardware the camera on the deep lenses, really only like three megapixel. So when you're training the images that you're going to be using facial detect detection later, if you're training them with poor polity images, you're gonna get poor quality facial detection out. So. I think our next up that we realize we can't use that camera. It's kind of just the prototyping camera was really meant for you know, full blown application. So I think the next step. So that project are going to be to get some different hardware with some better camera on it and see kind of where we can take that full. Well, how can our listeners follow what you are up to? Not real big on the whole social media thing. I kind of a recluse, but you definitely find me on linked in. Or if you're looking for help with AWS, you could find me on up work for sure Justin snare, both places also willing that mission. It's thank you so much for joining us on the podcast today. Justin listeners if you are on the older version of a bunch to now's the time to find upgrade path catching next week.

"You're listening to the ruby on rails podcast on the five by five network. You're listening to episode to sixty six and I'm your host Britney. Martin Justin snares, the director of cloud infrastructure for the Pittsburgh cultural trust he's been with the cultural trust for ten years in this passionate about his job. He really has AWS certifications always learning more. This man, literally eats sleeps and breathes AWS infrastructure is also a devoted husband father. And in his spare time an avid woodworker. Welcome to the show Justin thanks for having. Absolutely. So Justin, can you? Please. Tell us your IT origin story. Sure. I mean, I think like most people in IT started at a very young age. I got that first computer. And I just wanted to learn everything about it. Learn how it worked learn how to program things especially on it. I had stalled Lennox on my family's computer when I was nine which was not didn't go very well with my parents since they didn't even know how to turn it on at that point. But I loved it. And that's kind of where it started. I fell in love with. That I really focused on like computer classes in high school in went to college for network ministration network security more focused when I started with the trust. I had a few other jobs started with the trust. I kind of was thrust into the whole cloud stuff and really fell in love with it. And kind of sparked a new passion was before it had been mostly the security networking side. Now now, it's more DevOps in and cloud infrastructure. So when you start at the trust everything was very much stored on site the day. I started was actually the day that we actually undertake it a big website redesign project that was my very first day. So it was kind of overwhelming, but we worked with the with the developers to kinda get a plan together, and what kind of environment we wanted to have. And yet that point everything was all self hosted. But that was kind of the my first experience with ever even using ruby for rails for anything. So. Interesting. So I think our listeners would enjoy hearing about all the aid of US certifications. You have so any tips and tricks on getting certified. I would say the biggest thing is to get your hands dirty actually get in there. I mean for me at least, I'm a I'm a hands on kind of learner I like to get in there and just tinker with things in can kind of see how it however they works. They'd against documentation is actually really really good. So have never had a problem finding the answer to something that I needed to know AWS, just looking at the documentation. And then also I take advantage of couple different training programs. A cloud guru for one in lenox kademi is the second one I really like lenox academy training because they've got virtual labs. Grated virtual labs at that. So they can tell you exactly what you did wrong out in graded for you, which comes in really handy. And then just my general strategy when I take a test is, you know, I like to take their path the eight of his practices exams and get at least ninety percent before I ever attempt the real thing. And then on the real test. I land through the questions, I know right away, the speed through everything if I pause for even thirty seconds on a question. I'll skip it come back to it at the end just to make sure I can get all the questions answered in the time a lot 'cause there are quite a lot of questions that you don't have much time to really spend on just one question without one thing that I've really enjoyed that. You've done I got the AWS certified developer certificate about three years ago. And then recently had to get recertified and since then you actually built a sandbox environment at the trust. So that multiple people could go into the accounts, spin up resources and not worry about. About it. Do you think this is something that most orgnization should be doing? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, I think we're we're lucky that we have a boss that kind of understands the the importance of the training kind of hands on training. So I kind of asked her that for a couple years. And finally, you know, we sent quite a few people to date of. Yes. Conference this year. So I thought it was a good opportunity to roll that out. So that everyone has something to us, you know, just to do the labs at the conference. But then moving forward to experiment with whatever they need to you know, NATO Bs just kinda learn in grow yet. So as the trust director of cloud infrastructure, what has been the trickiest part of managing rails environment. So I would say definitely used to be like managing all the gems dependencies, but bundler has made that like a no brainer anymore. It also used to be a little difficulty raw try to run multiple versions of ruby on the same server, so we're looking RBM or something like that to control which I ever being used. We've simplified that infrastructure down. So that we're only running a symbol single application on anyone server. So that really eliminates the need to maintain multiple versions of ruby in parallel. So really, I mean difficulty at this part at this point. I mean, we have got it into autopilot so knock on wood here.
