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.

Deploying a static application in an EC2 instance from the S3 Bucket using AWS CodeDeploy

We saw a lot of theoretical stuff related to AWS CodeDeploy. Now with the help of those theories and concepts, we will try to deploy a sample NodeJS application on an EC2 machine using AWS CodeDeploy. The revision means source code build with AppSpec.yml file will be zipped and placed in the S3 bucket.

Getting ready

Before moving forward, one should know the following things first:

  1. Creating an IAM role and attaching permission to that role.
  2. Creating an EC2 instance in a public subnet and attaching the role in it.
  3. Creating the S3 bucket and uploading the file in that.

If you know these things, then you can continue.
