Practicing Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery on AWS

AWS has a huge library of fantastic resources. This post highlights the recently updated whitepaper on building out a CI/CD practice in the AWS Cloud.

Practicing Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery on AWS”, strikes a nice balance between laying out the AWS-specific steps and general concepts/tips. About 90% of this paper applies to any environment where you want to start a CI/CD practice.

I call out a few more details in the Twitter thread below…

I was pleasantly surprised to see the paper dive into team structure as well. this is a really key area that needs to be discussed by your team

I've seen a lot of problems pop up that could've been easily solved by a quick chat in the early stages

the section on building the pipeline IS @awscloud specific.

the principles hold up with other tools, so at least skim this area of the paper for some tips
