Currently, CloudWatch Event rules can be scheduled at minimum intervals of 5 minutes. At Trek10, we saw the need for a smaller interval, namely 1 minute. This need arose specifically in the context of handling Auto Scaling for ECS.

Stephen is working with Trek10 as part of his capstone thesis project for the University of Notre Dame’s ESTEEM Program. Stephen studied computer engineering at Trinity College Dublin Ireland in the highly regarded integrated master’s program. Throughout the course of his studies Stephen worked to become top of his class receiving numerous academic awards.
Through systems engineering experience with Amazon Web Services (Stephen interned with the CloudFront Team in 2015, and will be rejoining the team again later this year), and several extra-curricular pursuits, Stephen has compiled a wealth of experience working with cutting-edge technologies and has deliberately kept his skill set broad, adaptive and flexible.
Stephen’s Capstone thesis is being written in conjunction with his work at Trek10. In particular, Stephen is seeking to develop a considerable understanding of Docker, Amazon EC2 Container Service, and AWS Lambda.
