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.

Chapter 2. Integrating Applications with AWS Services

Sometimes you have to integrate your existing on-premise resources with cloud services. This is known as the hybrid cloud. It will help you achieve business goals without investing more in on-premises hardware and software. AWS provides hybrid capabilities for networking, storage, database, application development, and management tools for secure and seamless integration.

In this chapter, we will integrate applications with various AWS services such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Lambda, Amazon SQS, and Amazon SWF, which are highly available and fully managed by AWS.

Amazon DynamoDB is a fast, fully managed, highly available, and scalable NoSQL database service from AWS. DynamoDB uses key-value and document store data models. Amazon Kinesis is used to collect real-time data to process and analyze it. Amazon Kinesis comes with different capabilities such as Amazon Kinesis Firehose to load the streaming data to AWS, Amazon Kinesis...
