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.

AWS CodeBuild – automating the build

AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed AWS service that compiles source code, runs test cases, and produces ready-to-deploy software packages. It scales continuously and automatically to process multiple builds concurrently so you now need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers.

AWS CodeBuild benefits

  • Fully managed service for build: It eliminates the need to set up, update, patch, and manage build servers and software. There is no need to install, update, or manage any software.
  • Scale automatically: It continuously scales to meet the requirements of the build volume. It immediately processes the build whenever you submit. It can run the separate build concurrently, so it means there are no build lefts in a queue.
  • Continuous Integration and Delivery enabled: AWS CodeBuild is part of the AWS Code Service to create complete and automated software release workflows for CI/CD. You can integrate AWS CodeBuild into your existing CI/CD workflow.
  • Extensible...
