I now move onto the second, more awkward, section of the imperative code to refactor to an adaptive model. This shows how I need to massage both the imperative code to make it fit the model's structure better, and the model to support more capabilities. I then finish by comparing the imperative and active model approaches.
AWS credentials are an extremely precious and powerful asset. In the wrong hands they can cause serious damage either by disrupting services or, more commonly, by acquiring free compute power, usually to mine bitcoins, at your expense - bills with five figure sums over a matter of days are not unheard off. It’s a serious and very real risk that can jeopardise the financial viability of a product or team.
Development teams need AWS credentials, often powerful ones, to do their jobs: to create instances for debugging, to run tests and applications locally as part of the development cycle…
