Packer with WinRM over HTTPS

Way to build Windows STIG/CIS hardened AMI on AWS.

Problem is that WinRM Basic authentication is blocked by GroupPolicy.

Therefore it's required to setup WinRM over HTTPS.

The best explanation of Python decorators I’ve ever seen. (An archived answer from StackOverflow.)

NOTE: This is a question I found on StackOverflow which I’ve archived here, because the answer is so effing phenomenal.

Q: How can I make a chain of function decorators in Python?

If you are not into long explanations, see [Paolo Bergantino’s answer][2].

Understanding logging in Python

Logging trees


When applications are running in production, they become black boxes that need to be traced and monitored. One of the simplest, yet main, ways to do so is logging. Logging allows us - at the time we develop our software - to instruct the program to emit information while the system is running that will be useful for us and our sysadmins.
