Overview of this book

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) has never been simple, but these days the landscape is more bewildering than ever; its terrain riddled with blind alleys and pitfalls that seem almost designed to trap the less-experienced developer. If you’re determined enough to keep your balance on the cutting edge, this book will help you navigate the landscape with ease. This book will guide you through the most modern ways of building CI/CD pipelines with AWS, taking you step-by-step from the basics right through to the most advanced topics in this domain. The book starts by covering the basics of CI/CD with AWS. Once you’re well-versed with tools such as AWS Codestar, Proton, CodeGuru, App Mesh, SecurityHub, and CloudFormation, you’ll focus on chaos engineering, the latest trend in testing the fault tolerance of your system. Next, you’ll explore the advanced concepts of AIOps and DevSecOps, two highly sought-after skill sets for securing and optimizing your CI/CD systems. All along, you’ll cover the full range of AWS CI/CD features, gaining real-world expertise. By the end of this AWS book, you’ll have the confidence you need to create resilient, secure, and performant CI/CD pipelines using the best techniques and technologies that AWS has to offer.

Deploying the containerized application by creating a service instance in Proton

In this section, we will create a service instance to deploy the containerized application on both environments. First, we will create a source connection to the application repository (This repository you need to create in Github and push the files of chapter-03-aws-proton folder in the master branch. In my case I have created a repo aws-proton in Github) so that it can be used by AWS Proton. You also need to create a dev branch out of master branch and edit the line 93 of index.html file. You need to replace the string Staging to Dev. We will deploy the application from dev branch to stark-env-dev and then deploy the master branch to stark-env-staging.

Creating a source connection (GitHub)

To create a source connection with your VCS (GitHub, though you can use Bitbucket or GitLab as well), perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the AWS Proton console and click on Source connections under Settings...
