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.

A container is a standalone, lightweight and executable package that is a piece of software; it includes everything required to run it such as runtime, code, system libraries, and system tools.

It is available for Linux and Windows-based applications, and is containerized software that will always run the same way, in any of the environments. It will isolate the software from the surroundings.

Containers and virtual machines have the same benefits for resource isolation and allocation; both function differently, as Containers virtualize the operating system and not the hardware. Containers are more efficient and portable, compared to virtual machines.

In the next section, we will look at the Amazon EC2 Container Service.
