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 CodePipeline

AWS CodePipeline is a CI/CD service for a reliable and fast software release process. As per your release model, AWS CodePipeline will build, test, and deploy the code, if there is any code change. It enables the faster and reliable delivery of features and updates. AWS CodePipeline can easily integrate with AWS services and other DevOps platforms. This section on AWS CodePipeline is divided into the following topics:

  • AWS CodePipeline benefits
  • AWS CodePipeline features
  • Creating an AWS CodePipeline from the console
  • Creating an AWS CodePipeline from AWS CLI

AWS CodePipeline benefits

Let's start with AWS CodePipeline benefits, which are as follows:

  • AWS CodePipeline allows you to rapidly deliver new features to users by automating the software release process.
  • You can improve quality by easily testing each code change and catching bugs while they are simple and small to fix.
  • AWS CodePipeline provides a graphical user interface to model different stages for the software release process...
