AWS Advent is a yearly exploration of AWS in 24 parts contributed by volunteers from the AWS community. Follow @AWSAdvent and get inspired on a daily basis.
I open this year’s AWS Advent with a post on Deploy your AWS Infrastructure Continuously
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.
