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.

Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) Workflow

In this tutorial, we will create an end-to-end Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline, using AWS CodePipeline and Amazon ECS.

Before you start this tutorial, you must have a few resources available to create the CD pipeline. We have mostly covered all the resources in the previous sections.


You should create all the required resources within the same AWS Region.

The prerequisites are as follows:

  • A source control repository: AWS CodeCommit is used with Dockerfile and an application source in this tutorial
  • A Docker image repository: Amazon ECR is used containing an image that will be built from Dockerfile and an application source
  • An Amazon ECS task definition: To refer the Docker image that is hosted in image repository
  • An Amazon ECS cluster: To run a task definition service

Once you have finished with the prerequisites, then proceed with the tutorial to create the AWS CodePipeline.
