By: Atul Mistry

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.

Amazon DynamoDB

The Amazon DynamoDB service falls under the Database category. It is a fast NoSQL database service from Amazon. It is highly durable as it will replicate data across three distinct geographical facilities in AWS regions. It is used for applications which need consistent, single-digit millisecond latency. Its reliable performance and flexible data models make it suitable for web, mobile, gaming, and IoT applications. DynamoDB will remove the burden of administrating operating and scaling databases. It will take care of software patching, hardware provisioning, cluster scaling, setup, configuration, and replication. You can create a database table and store and retrieve any amount and variety of data. It will delete expired data automatically from the table. It will help to reduce the usage storage and cost of storing data which is no longer needed.

Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) is a highly available, fully managed, and in-memory cache. For millions of requests per second...
