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.

Use cases for different architectures

Use cases for Amazon EC2 service:

Use case 1


  • Service administration
  • Contact the service provider to ramp up more servers
  • Minimum usage commitments with existing service provider

Reasons to choose Amazon Web Services:

  • It can automatically distribute incoming traffic between Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances
  • No need to contact service provider if need to scale up or down additional servers
  • Use Amazon CloudWatch to monitor the resources and easily supervise Amazon EC2 instances from AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or AWS SDK


  • Save the expense of one or more operation position
  • Flexible and responsive to prepare for more growth

Use case 2


  • Control costs and an infrastructure that allows you to start from small and scale as needed
  • More cost-effective than an on-premises hosted solution
  • Service availability issue because of Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks

Reasons to choose Amazon Web Services:

  • Availability, security, cost...
