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 5. CI/CD in AWS Part 2 – CodeDeploy, CodePipeline, and CodeStar

In the previous chapter, we discussed AWS CodeCommit and CodeBuild. In this chapter, we will discuss other AWS code family tools such as AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodePipeline, AWS CodeStar, and AWS X-Ray. AWS CodeDeploy is a fast, reliable, and consistent way to deploy the application.

AWS CodePipeline automates the deployment process to model and visualize the code for new updates and features. AWS CodeStar is used to develop, build, and deploy the application quickly on AWS from the AWS CodeStar console.

AWS X-Ray helps developers to easily debug and analyze the distributed applications.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • AWS CodeDeploy
  • AWS CodePipeline
  • AWS CodeStar
  • AWS X-Ray

Let's explore each topic and see how they can be used to achieve CI/CD on AWS.
