Expert AWS Development

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 Well-Architected framework

The AWS Well-Architected framework provides best practices that you will learn and implement to design a secure, cost-effective, and reliable application.

This framework is divided into five pillars, as follows:

  • Operational excellence:
    • To deliver business values, systems should be able to run and monitor
    • The supporting process and procedures improve continually
  • Security:
    • Provides risk assessments and mitigation strategies while delivering business values to protect systems, information, data, and assets
  • Reliability
    • The system should be capable of recovering from service/infrastructure disruptions, by acquiring resources dynamically to meet demand, and from transient network issues, or mitigating disruptions such as mis-configurations
  • Performance efficiency:
    • To meet system requirements, it should use computing resources efficiently
    • It should also maintain the same efficiency whenever there are changes to demand and changes to technologies
  • Cost optimization:
    • It should...
