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.

Amazon EC2 instance and Elastic Load Balancer

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud(Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides a virtual server on the cloud. It eliminates your costs in investing in hardware up front and gives you the facility to develop and deploy your application faster. You can launch as many or as few Amazon EC2 instances as per your business requirements, configure security and networking, and manage the storage. It will boot new server instances in minutes and allow you to quickly scale your capacity up or down, as the requirements change or if there are unexpected spikes.

For Amazon EC2 instances, you will pay for the capacity that you actually use. It provides tools to build applications that are failure resilient, and isolates the developers from common failure scenarios.

Amazon EC2 common terms are as follows:

  • Instances: Virtual compute environments
  • Instance types: Different configurations such as CPU, storage, memory, and networking capacity for instances
  • Amazon Machine Images...
