How did you become a software developer/tester/engineer/lead, etc?
Odds are we all are missing some important information to do our jobs most effectively.

This podcast is an attempt to fill those education gaps.
I focus on testing and process questions like “How do I know it works?”, “How do I effectively test?”, and the like.

But really, anything in the software development realm is fair game.

LocalStack provides an easy-to-use test/mocking framework for developing Cloud applications.

Currently, the focus is primarily on supporting the AWS cloud stack.

LocalStack spins up the following core Cloud APIs on your local machine:

* API Gateway at http://localhost:4567
* Kinesis at http://localhost:4568
* DynamoDB at http://localhost:4569
* DynamoDB Streams at http://localhost:4570
* Elasticsearch at http://localhost:4571
* S3 at http://localhost:4572
* Firehose at http://localhost:4573
* Lambda at http://localhost:4574
* SNS at http://localhost:4575
* SQS at http://localhost:4576
* Redshift at http://localhost:4577

Additionally, LocalStack provides a powerful set of tools to interact with the cloud services, including a fully featured KCL Kinesis client with Python binding, simple setup/teardown integration for nosetests, as well as an Environment abstraction that allows to easily switch between local and remote Cloud execution.
