Overview of this book

Expert AWS Development begins with the installation of the AWS SDK and you will go on to get hands-on experience of creating an application using the AWS Management Console and the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). Then, you will integrate applications with AWS services such as DynamoDB, Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, Amazon SQS, and Amazon SWF. Following this, you will get well versed with CI/CD workflow and work with four major phases in the release process – Source, Build, Test, and Production. Then, you will learn to apply AWS Developer tools to your Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) workflow. Later, you will learn about user authentication using Amazon Cognito, and also how you can evaluate the best architecture as per your infrastructure costs. You will learn about Amazon EC2 service and will deploy an app using it. You will also deploy a practical real-world example of a CI/CD application with the Serverless Application Framework, which is known as AWS Lambda. Finally, you will learn how to build, develop, and deploy the Application using AWS Developer tools such as AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and AWS CodePipeline, as per your project requirements.

CI and CD workflow

In this section, we will create an end-to-end CI and CD pipeline using AWS CodePipeline and AWS CloudFormation.

Before you start,you must have a few resources available to create a CD pipeline. We have covered most of these resources in the previous chapters.


You should create all the required resources within the same AWS region.

The prerequisites are as follows:

  • AWS CodeBuild: You can use AWS CodeBuild to build, test, and package your serverless application
  • AWS CloudFormation: You can use AWS CloudFormation to deploy your serverless application
  • AWS CodeDeploy: You can use AWS CodeDeploy to deploy updates on your serverless application
  • AWS CodePipeline: You can use AWS CodePipeline to model, visualize, and automate the steps required for the serverless application

The following section will describe how to integrate all these tools from AWS CodePipeline to automate the deployment of serverless applications. You have to create an AWS CloudFormation role and attach the AWSLambdaExecute...
