1. Rapidly prototyping conversational UIs with Telegram using Python, AWS Lambda, and the AWS API Gateway

    At the time I wrote this, conversational UIs were a hot topic. Plenty of silicon oracles were writing about the impending world takeover of chat bots. I wrote about quickly scaffolding a conversational UI project via a Telegram bot. It's a great approach for testing conversational UI value props with customers without needing to build out a custom bot.


  2. Setting up a Pelican site under your own domain using Amazon S3

    My first pass at publishing this blog involved generating a static site using Pelican (which I still use) and then hosting the site on Amazon's simple storage service (S3), which I no longer use...well, no longer use to host this site anyway. I detailed the steps I took to get it up and running. It has been a few years so things may be out of date.
