Microservices on AWS (AWS Whitepaper) by AWS Whitepapers

September 2017Microservices are an architectural and organizational approach to software development designed to speed up deployment cycles, foster innovation and ownership, and improve maintainability and scalability of software applications. This approach includes scaling organizations that deliver software and services. Using a microservices approach, software is composed of small independent services that communicate over well-defined APIs. These services are owned by small self-contained teams.In this whitepaper, we summarize the common characteristics of microservices, talk about the main challenges of building microservices, and describe how product teams can leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) to overcome those challenges.This documentation is offered for free here as a Kindle book, or you can read it in PDF format at https://aws.amazon.com/whitepapers/.

How to Make Money on YouTube: and Other Social Media Sites by Adam Rumanek

Social media is about getting people to know you, engage with you and trust you so that ultimately they want to do business with you. You too can make money through social media platforms if you take the time to follow the proper steps, know what you want, know your client base and research your market in an organized way. Most importantly, devising a proper strategy will help you build your brand and increase your traffic. This e-book begins by helping you understand the value of having a presence on YouTube and other social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and takes away the fear of failure and the unknown. Over the course of this book we share ideas and answer three very important questions: “How do I engage with my customers and potential customers?” “How do I drive traffic from one social platform to other social platforms?” and, “How do I make money with social media?” This book is divided into several sections each exploring social media platforms and monetization. After you read this book, you will be armed with the proper tools, language and information to start using effective social media techniques. It is natural to be afraid of the unknown or to have a lack of understanding in terms of why social media platforms are great for your company. However, the process of being discovered, engaged and trusted is not only crucial to achieve real business results but also important to stay abreast of things. The reality is, if you do not fill the gap between customer and client needs and services then your competitors will find a way to. The goal of this e-book is to help you develop a successful business strategy to build awareness for your brand and website, increase your audience, expand your content to other platforms, keep your audience engaged and finally to make money online.

Not You It’s Me (A Boston Love Story Book 1) by Julie Johnson


Gemma Summers is unlucky in love.
She’s known it since third grade, when her first crush blew a spitball into her hair, and a decade-long string of bad dates, boring sex, and abysmal morning-afters has done nothing to improve her prospects.
But when a random radio call-in contest lands her courtside tickets to the hottest playoff game of the season, Gemma’s luck may finally be on the upswing — even if it doesn’t exactly seem like it when the dreaded jumbotron kiss-cam lands on her and her date, who’s too busy ignoring her to notice…

Chase Croft doesn’t date.
Despite ample opportunity as Boston’s most eligible bachelor, the reformed bad-boy would rather put his energy into taking over the family business than weed through a world of gold-diggers to find an honest woman.
But when the beautiful girl in the seat next to him becomes a courtside spectacle at the hands of her loser boyfriend, he can’t help but step in and save the day.

One kiss. Two strangers. No strings attached.
The only problem is, Chase is used to getting whatever he wants. And after kissing Gemma once, he knows one thing…
He wants more.

NOT YOU IT’S ME is a full-length, standalone contemporary romance about a girl who doesn’t believe in love… and the man who changes her mind. Due to sexy-times and strong language, it is intended for readers 17 and up.
