What's on Our Minds 🤔

Serverless Django: Exploring the State of the Art on AWS

AWS Lambda is a stand-out tool for powering low traffic web applications. In this blog, explore a step-by-step guide to hosting a Wagtail app with Lambda at its core. Note: this blog assumes a basic understanding of AWS Lambda and its functionality. 

Optimizing a Machine Learning Pipeline to Reduce Run Time

Six Feet Up helped a sports analytics firm optimize its machine learning pipeline and reduce the pipeline’s run time from four and a half days to just under 90 seconds. By parallelizing and componentizing the processes behind the pipeline — and relying on AWS Lambda — the data pipeline, used to validate major professional football game models against each other, is now faster and more efficient.

Reducing Runtime and Computing Costs on a Big Data Pipeline

A large, not-for-profit healthcare organization that aggregates petabytes of data charged Six Feet Up with improving its existing database pipeline. By removing tens of thousands of lines of repetitive code and using open source technologies, Azure Monitor, Apache Airflow 2.0, Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, and more to optimize the pipeline, the team created a plan that will reduce the data processing time by 20 hours (from 24 hours to 4 hours) and save the organization money via computing costs.

Projects on Deck 👷‍♀️

What's been keeping us busy this month:
  • We're working with Central New Mexico Community College to migrate their on-premises datacenter to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The new deployment will feature Plone on EC2, AWS WAF for content delivery and RDS postgresql. 
  • We're helping a client develop an agriculture IOT device to provide more information about the crops.
  • We're providing Django training and mentoring — as well as assisting with Django app development — for a court services provider.
Can we help you out? Read about some of our recent projects or contact us.
