David Carnahan

David grew up in a small town in East Texas named Brownsboro. He later went to school at Austin College in Sherman Texas, then UT Houston Medical School, and ultimately completed his Texas tour in San Antonio where he trained as an Internist in the Air Force at Wilford Hall Medical Center. In 2006, he became restless and returned to school at the University of Pennsylvania where he earned a Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology. His career took a left turn in 2010 when he jumped from an academic path in Internal Medicine to the Health Informatics world. This was where he had the epiphany that he had been a closet informaticist for a long time and was now doing what he was destined to do. He loves learning new things, and has been a voracious reader of leadership, business, and technology literature as well as all the great science fiction, and fantasy he can get his hands on.

Automating Website Development with AWS Project

16 Sept 2017

So basically, I spent several days trying to figure out why my website would only show the front page – none of the links worked. It turned out that I had connected CloudFront to the s3 bucket link and not the s3 ‘website’ link. See the picture below. You will need to make sure you use this link:

Automating Website Development with Amazon Web Services

This blog is long overdue. I have wanted to build my own website, and host it for a very long time. The problem was I did not know how to code javascript … and I really didn’t have the time to become a full-stack developer. I wanted to go deeper on the data science side of things, and learn as much as I could about cloud. But that nagging desire to create and maintain my own site was still there.
