Overview of this book

AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodeBuild, and CodePipeline are scalable services offered by AWS that automate an application's build and deployment pipeline. In order to deliver tremendous speed and agility, every organization is moving toward automating their entire application pipeline. This book will cover all the AWS services required to automate your deployment to your instances. You'll begin by setting up and using one of the AWS services for automation –CodeCommit. Next, you'll learn how to build a sample Maven and NodeJS application using CodeBuild. After you've built the application, you'll see how to use CodeDeploy to deploy the application in EC2/Auto Scaling. You'll also build a highly scalable and fault tolerant Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline using some easy-to-follow recipes. Following this, you'll achieve CI/CD for a microservice application and reduce the risk within your software development life cycle globally. You'll also learn to set up an infrastructure using CloudFormation templates and Ansible, and see how to automate AWS resources using AWS Lambda. Finally, you'll learn to automate instances in AWS and automate the deployment lifecycle of applications. By the end of this book, you'll be able to minimize application downtime and implement CI/CD, gaining total control over your software development lifecycle.

People working as Developer, DevOps, or SysOps hear a lot about the build of an application, screams that the build failed, and requests to not break the build all the time. So, what do they mean about the build? The developers write code and push it to a version control system such as GitHub, SVN, or CodeCommit. This source code needs to be analyzed and processed further so that it can be deployed to the production server or platform.

The processing step can be any of the following:

  1. Source code usually consists of classes, objects, methods, and functions. So, we have to compile and link them to make it in an installable or binary format.
  2. Running test cases or quality analysis on source code means that the source code will pass through the seven axes of code quality--duplication, code coverage, complexity, comments, bugs, unit test, and architecture and design...
