Microservices. Demystified

The central idea of building Microservices architecture is to split functionality into cohesive verticals which aim to solve specific issue in the domain. Microservices architectures are driven by the domain problem and not by the technology it uses. As such it might be challenging to split your monolith application because it requires complete rethinking of the architecture and the domains that are involved. Architectural Complexity needs to first be addressed. For Microservices, architectural complexity comes into play when it comes to interactions between individual services that implement specific domain.

Security Inside Docker Containers

In this article we’re going to talk about security inside Docker containers. Here at Konstankino LLC we heavily utilize Docker and would like to shed some light on security and explain why it is especially important when it comes to containers as microservices. Assuming you have a well-defined functionality that you would like to abstract and encapsulate inside your container, it is relatively easy to do. Choose a base Operating System that your container will inherit from, install dependencies, package your files and now you have new shiny container that you can deploy and use.

Escape into the Cloud with AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Docker or: How “Release On Steroids” actually looks and feels.

Convenience and efficiency are the two prime motivators that nudge reluctant teams into the world of Cloud computing. For many individuals, Computing Cloud is a buzzword that is often interpreted differently. In this article, we will show you how your release process can be dramatically improved, simplified, and streamlined. We will focus mostly on Amazon Web Services – specifically, on how to use Amazon’s Elastic Beanstalk product in combination with a Docker to enable you to take your release process up to the next level.


We like to think about technology from the point of view of what it enables you to do. How easy it is to do one thing using one set of tools that make you productive. There is no such thing as «one size fits all» and the right-thing-for-the-right-job applies all the time. This article is dedicated to regulations. One of those regulations is FERPA. Here we will shed some light on how AWS helped us to achieve desired security for our customers.

2FA and Remember Me Feature

Developers should care about a project’s security requirements, even if they don’t have them in their backlog and SOW. Security can definitely impact the product that they are building. Recently one of our customers, a project manager with a small team of in-house engineers, requested that we implement a 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) feature for their app, since their business is regulated by a state agency based on the data that their app processes and stores.

San Jose International Airport

Konstankino LLC is excited to share yet another happy story of a recent open-source project we were privileged to work on. The system was an old-school Django monolith application that the San Jose International Airport used for managing their ads infrastructure. Your browser does not support the video tag. An example of the App in action with some basic UI The system was developed to manage various devices via a dashboard, such as Projectors, Creston, and BACNet devices.
