Adam recaps the latest launches and demos how key services can integrate to accelerate developer productivity.
Amazon CodeCatalyst, announced during Dr. Werner Vogels Keynote, is a unified software development service that makes it faster to build and deliver on AWS.
Introducing Amazon CodeCatalyst – Harry Mower, Director of DevOps Services, and Doug Clauson, Product Manager, provide an overview of Amazon CodeCatalyst. CodeCatalyst provides one place where you can plan work, collaborate on code, and build, test, and deploy applications with nearly continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools.
Deep dive on CodeCatalyst Workspaces – Tmir Karia, Sr. Product Manager, and Rahul Gulati, Sr. Product Manager, discuss how Amazon CodeCatalyst Workspaces decreases the time you spend creating and maintaining a local development environment and allows you to quickly set up a cloud development workspace, switch between projects, and replicate the development workspace configuration across team members.

Review topics like security of the pipeline versus security in the pipeline, ways to incorporate security checkpoints across various pipeline stages, security event management, and aggregating vulnerability findings into a single pane of glass.
Build it & run it: Streamline your DevOps capabilities with machine learning Rafael Ramos, Shivansh Singh, and Jared Reimer discuss how to use machine learning–powered tools like Amazon CodeWhisperer, Amazon CodeGuru, and Amazon DevOps Guru to boost your applications’ availability and write software faster and more reliably.
Infrastructure as Code
