AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy. With CodeBuild, you don’t need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers. CodeBuild scales continuously and processes multiple builds concurrently, so your builds are not left waiting in a queue. You can get started quickly by using prepackaged build environments, or you can create custom build environments that use your own build tools. With CodeBuild, you are charged by the minute for the compute resources you use.

You can also use CodeBuild with other AWS services. For example, you can plug CodeBuild into AWS CodePipeline, which automates building and testing code in CodeBuild each time you commit a change to your source repository. You can create a continuous integration workflow by using the AWS CodePipeline wizard to connect your source repository and then select CodeBuild as the build provider. CodePipeline also lets you extend this workflow into continuous delivery when you add tests or deployment actions after the CodeBuild stage. CodeBuild is also integrated with AWS Elastic Beanstalk, enabling you to easily build and test code in CodeBuild for your Elastic Beanstalk applications. You can use the Elastic Beanstalk CLI, API, and SDKs to initiate building and testing your source code before deploying it to your Elastic Beanstalk environment.
