Hello, I'm Nathan!

Maker 🔧

About me🙋‍♂️

I have a curious mind and enjoy exploring any and all fields of technology. Given a problem I am driven to design the best solution for any given situation with a healthy mix of old and cutting edge.

I’ve recently taken a strong interest in Ethereum Smart Contracts and have worked on a number of small projects building Distributed applications. I’m working hard to stay ahead of anything and everything that Blockchain based applications can offer us and have an unmatched enthusiasm about solving problems using distributed systems.

Moving forward I am eager to develop more of a background in the DevOps space by working along side other developers and supporting them by providing scalable and reliable infrastructure for them to deploy solutions to in an automated and repeatable manner.

Greengrass - Secure Tunneling

Greengrass - Secure Tunneling
AWS IoT Secure Tunneling is a managed proxy meant for devices positioned behind secure firewalls on remote sites. A secure tunnel can be created using temporary credentials allowing access to the device on configurable ports. The secure tunneling process requires a bidirectional link to be established before communication can proceed.

Greengrass - Docker Deployments

Greengrass - Docker Deployments
AWS IoT Greengrass recently got Docker support; a much needed addition to the suite of edge tooling available at our disposal. As with most new IoT Greengrass feature, it can be a bit bumped to get setup with. I would know, I fought through the setup process on the day of release and ran into a couple quirks that I figure I'll share with the world in the form of an unofficial guide.
