AWS Advent has started

I open this year’s AWS Advent with a post on Deploy your AWS Infrastructure Continuously

Cover of Amazon Web Services in Action

Level up, strengthen your AWS skills.

Our book Amazon Web Services in Action is a comprehensive introduction to computing, storing, and networking in the AWS cloud. You'll find clear, relevant coverage of all the essential AWS services, emphasizing best practices for security, high availability, and scalability. Get the first chapter for free!

Continuously integrating and deploying your source code is the new standard in many successful Internet companies. But what about your infrastructure? Can you deploy a change to your infrastructure in an automated way? Can you run automated tests on your infrastructure to ensure that a change has no unintended side effects? In this post, I will show you how you can apply the same processes to your AWS infrastructure that you apply to your source code. You will learn how the AWS services CloudFormation, CodePipeline and Lambda can be combined to continuously deploy infrastructure.

I’m an independent consultant, technical writer, and programming founder. All these activities have to do with AWS. I’m writing this blog and all other projects together with my brother Andreas.

In 2009, we joined the same company as software developers. Three years later, we were looking for a way to deploy our software—an online banking platform—in an agile way. We got excited about the possibilities in the cloud and the DevOps movement. It’s no wonder we ended up migrating the whole infrastructure of Tullius Walden Bank to AWS. This was a first in the finance industry, at least in Germany! Since 2015, we have accelerated the cloud journeys of startups, mid-sized companies, and enterprises. We have penned books like Amazon Web Services in Action and Rapid Docker on AWS, we regularly update our blog, and we are contributing to the Open Source community. Besides running a 2-headed consultancy, we are entrepreneurs building Software-as-a-Service products.

We are available for projects.
