Ubuntu is part of the Google Code In

Yesterday I received an email that make me happy! I received an email from an Ubuntu Mail list, that was almost dead. In few words, the email said Ubuntu is going to be part of the Google Code In . This are great new!

But why I have a lot of interest that Ubuntu is part of the GCI?

Well. the first time I listen about the Google Summer of Code and Google Code In, was on 2010. Ubuntu was part of the GSOC and I was on college, months later the GCI began, unfortunately I was to old (18 years). So I began my work on trying to be part of this program. I tried on 2011 and failed with KDE, 2012 with New Vision for Public Schools and in 2014 I finally did it with the!

This year I help the as a co-mentor and I'm planning to help Ubuntu for this Google Code In as a mentor. For my surprise I have an old friend working on this, the great José Antonio Rey. If you want to help join the irc:#ubuntu-google on freenode  or the mail list: ubuntu-soc mailing list

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.
