Giving a try to Google Map Maker

Last month I watch a video on YouTube about Google map maker.
It sounds cool contributing on something you know, and many people use. So I decide to start checking Google maps and find one mistake. I report it, at the beginning I though it was going to be reject it. But I was wrong, two days ago I received an email informing me that my suggestion was approved. So if you like Google maps and find some mistake you can edit it go ahead.

After this experience with google maps, I will give a try to OpenStreet

  1. The biggest problem with contributing to Google maps is that you are essentially doing free work so that a company can wrap the free work you did in a proprietary license, make the source (the vector data) unavailable to anyone including yourself, and then profiting from it.
    It IS cool doing work on something millions of people will use, but doing free work for Google Maps just to so you can work on a widely used product would be like contributing to Microsoft Windows for free.
    If map making interests you then I would strongly suggest going the OpenStreetMap path, which is also used be a very large number of people, but is free as in freedom, and is not work done just for the private interest of a for profit company.

Access to AWS Postgres instance in private subnet

I have been working with AWS in the last days and encounter some issues when using RDS.  Generally when you're working in development environment you have setup your database as Publicly accessible and this isn't an issue. But when you're working in Production. So we place the Amazon RDS database into a private subnet. What we need to do for connecting to the database using PgAdmin or other tool?

We're going to use one of the most common methods for doing this. You will need to launch an Amazon EC2 instance in the public subnet and then use it as jumping box.

So after you have your EC2, you will need to run the following command.
See explantion below

After this, you will need to configure your PgAdmin.
The host name will be your localhost, the port is the same you define in the above command.
Maintenance database will be your DB name and the username you have for connecting.

Hope this helps you connect to your databases.

La ultima alegría de los sampedranos del 2017

El año 2017 esta por terminar, y para la ciudadanía de la capital industrial ha sido un año singular. La ciudad se enorgullecía de que en nuestro Aeropuerto Ramon Villeda Morales, íbamos a tener el único vuelo directo entre Europa y Honduras. Finalmente se empezaba a ver obras de infraestructura concluyendo en el tiempo establecido. Se podían observar los cruces de cebra en las intersecciones de la tercera avenida y primera calle, aparte que los conductores empezaron a respetarlos, y no digamos los semáforos peatonales que lindo es ver como la ciudadanía espera su momento para cruzar por el lugar que le corresponde.

Parecía que este 2017 iba a ser un año de alegrías para la ciudad, y que no iba a suceder  algo que lo podría devastar esas pequeñas alegrías que nos hacían olvidar todas esas políticas de gobierno provenientes de la capital, que han perjudicado al  territorio nacional y no digamos a la ciudad que produce mas del 40% del PIB del país .

Llegaban las elecciones y el actual a…
