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.

Docker with the Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS)

Docker is a technology to build, run, test, and deploy distributed applications, easily and quickly on Linux-based containers. In Docker, your application will be packaged with all of its dependencies, into a standardized unit. This standardized unit is known as a container. This container includes system tools, libraries, and code to run the applications. You can scale and deploy applications in any environment and know that your code will run.

It helps users by providing highly reliable and low-cost ways to build, run, test, and deploy the distributed applications, at any scale, by running Docker on AWS. Docker  comes in two licensing models: subscription-based Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), open source Docker Community Edition (CE), and AWS supports both these models.

It provides a few benefits such as:

  • Docker users ship software 13 times more frequently than non-Docker users because developers will ship only isolated services as...
