Welcome to my course! My name is Tofig and I am a software developer and a Solution Architect with over 6 years of experience building on AWS.

In this course we will learn how to build continuous deployment pipelines on AWS. Our pipeline will pick up changes from the repository, build them, and deploy through a series of steps, such as deployment to test and production environments. And the great thing is that we will build all this deployment infrastructure in a real programming language, Typescript, using AWS Cloud Development Kit. CDK is a game changer for infrastructure development, as it allows us to define cloud infrastructure in a reusable and composable way.

Deployment automation is a highly demanded skill, especially in the world of microservices. In this course you will learn skills that will boost speed and quality of your deployments. As a result, you and your team will work faster and more efficiently.

This course is going to be very hands-on. Together, we will take a demo application and build a fully automated pipeline for it from scratch. We will start with a simple pipeline that takes changes from the repository, builds them and deploys to production. Then we will gradually increase complexity by adding more functionality to it. For example, we will add deployment to test environment, automated testing, monitoring, alarming, and rollbacks. You will learn how to work with AWS services such as CodePipeline, CodeBuild, and CodeDeploy. You will also learn how to use AWS CDK to define AWS infrastructure using a real code, with compile time checks and unit testing.

We are going to explore every step of the way in details to make sure that you understand exactly what and why we are building and how it all works. We will build everything in a scalable and production ready way, without taking any shortcuts, so that you can take what you learned and apply it in your daily work immediately. Every topic we cover will include explanation of how and when it can be applied in a real world scenario, so that you are able to make right decisions in your own projects. All the code is available for you on GitHub, so that you can refer to it if needed.

So sign up now and become a continuous deployment master, taking you and your team to the next level of development experience!
