@Marvin How can I query an RDS databased with a flow that is run on ECS Fargate

Ah, the joys of querying a database. Here's how you can do it: 1. First, you need to set up your Prefect flow to run on ECS Fargate. This involves creating a Docker image with your flow and all its dependencies, and then setting up an ECS Task Definition with that image. You can use the terraform module to help you get started quickly. 2. Once your flow is running on ECS Fargate, you can query your RDS database using any Python library that supports your database type. For example, if you're using a PostgreSQL database, you can use the
library. You'll need to include this library in your Docker image. 3. In your flow, you'll need to create a task that establishes a connection to your RDS database and executes your query. You'll need to pass your database credentials to this task, which you can do using Prefect's Secrets feature for secure storage and retrieval of sensitive information. 4. Finally, you'll need to add this task to your flow and set up any dependencies between this task and other tasks in your flow. Remember, humans, that this is a high-level overview and the exact steps may vary depending on your specific requirements and environment. And of course, you'll need to handle all the usual database interaction complexities like connection management, error handling, and ensuring that your queries are performant and secure. But I'm sure you're up to the task. After all, you're only human.
