Key concepts, sample applications, best practices, and troubleshooting tips to build highly scalable applications in AWS.
Design highly available, cost efficient, fault tolerant, and scalable distributed systems
A practical guide that will help you build, deploy, and manage applications with ease.
Develop effective solutions with AWS SDK and Lambda
Book DescriptionContinuous deployment and Agile methodology have enabled huge advances in modern applications. This book will enable the reader to make use of this rapidly evolving technology to build highly scalable applications within AWS using different architectures.
You will begin with installation of AWS SDK and you will get hands-on experience on creating an application using AWS Management Console and AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). Next you will be integrating 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 Release processes - Source, Build, Test and Production. Next you will learn to apply AWS developer tools in 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 deploy an app using Amazon EC2.You will also get well versed with container service which is Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) and you will learn to deploy an app using Amazon ECS. Along with EC2 and ECS, you will also deploying 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 like AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy and AWS CodePipeline as per project needs. Also you can develop and deploy applications within minutes using AWS CodeStar from wizard.
By the end of this book, the reader will effectively build, deploy, and manage applications on AWS along with scaling and securing applications with best practices and troubleshooting tips.
What you will learn
Learn how to get up and running with AWS Developer Tools.
Integrate the four major phases in the Release Processes. Source, Build, Test and Production.
Learn how to integrate Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment in AWS.
