Continuing on from the previous episode, we look at creating a Docker Swarm cluster and using Traefik to load balance and route requests to various applications. Using this and CloudFlare proxies, we're able to create and deploy hobby applications in minutes.
I recently upgraded Drifting Ruby's site from Ruby 2.6 to Ruby 2.7 as part of some general maintenance. The Beanstalk instance was using an older version of Amazon Linux.

In this episode, we look at the discovery path and how to successfully deploy your Ruby on Rails application to AWS Elastic Beanstalk with Amazon Linux 2 and Ruby 2.7.
