GitHub 對 Issues 增加了一些新功能

GitHub 推出了 Issues 的 beta program:「GitHub Issues · Project planning for developers」。

目前列出來的新功能裡,Board 與 Table 呈現方式 (Bored of boards? Switch to tables.),以及 Subticket 的功能 (Break issues into actionable tasks),這兩個算是在 project management 裡面很重要的功能,不過整體還是很陽春,只能說補上了一些重要的元素...

另外這次的 beta program 算是宣示 GitHub 有投入資源在改善 project management 這部份的功能,也許之後也許會有其他新功能繼續推出?

Amazon ECS 可以跑 cron job 了...

Amazon ECS 上面固定時間跑某些東西,以前得自己用 AWS Lambda 帶 (或是自己架,不過這樣就要自己考慮 High Availability 架構了),現在則是直接支援:「Amazon ECS Now Supports Time and Event-Based Task Scheduling」。

Previously, you could start and stop Amazon ECS tasks manually, but running tasks on a schedule required writing and integrating an external scheduler with the Amazon ECS API.

Now you can schedule tasks through the Amazon ECS console on fixed time intervals (e.g.: number of minutes, hours, or days). Additionally, you can now set Amazon ECS as a CloudWatch Events target, allowing you to launch tasks by using CloudWatch Events.
