DevOps and Continuous Delivery at re:Invent 2016 – Wrap-up
The AWS re:Invent 2016 conference was packed with some exciting announcements and sessions around DevOps and Continuous Delivery. We launched AWS CodeBuild, a fully managed build service that eliminates the need to provision, manage, and scale your own build servers. You now have the ability to run your continuous integration and continuous delivery process entirely on AWS by plugging AWS CodeBuild into AWS CodePipeline, which automates building, testing, and deploying code each time you push a change to your source repository. If you are interested in learning more about AWS CodeBuild, you can sign up for the webinar on January 20th here.
The DevOps track had over 30 different breakout sessions ranging from customer stories to deep dive talks to best practices. If you weren’t able to attend the conference or missed a specific session, here is a link to the entire playlist.
There were a number of talks that can help you get started with your own DevOps practices for rapid software delivery. Here are some introductory sessions to give you the proper background:
DEV201: Accelerating Software Delivery with AWS Developer Tools
DEV211: Automated DevOps and Continuous Delivery
After you understand the big picture, you can dive into automating your software delivery. Here are some sessions on how to deploy your applications:
DEV310: Choosing the Right Software Deployment Technique
DEV403: Advanced Continuous Delivery Techniques
DEV404: Develop, Build, Deploy, and Manage Services and Applications
Finally, to maximize your DevOps efficiency, you’ll want to automate the provisioning of your infrastructure. Here are a couple sessions on how to manage your infrastructure:
DEV313: Infrastructure Continuous Delivery Using AWS CloudFormation
DEV319: Automating Cloud Management & Deployment
