John Chapin offers an overview of existing cloud-native build systems and outlines their benefits and drawbacks, including cost efficiency, environment stability, and provenance. Drawing on a real-world use case involving a Maven-based build and a serverless application architecture, John walks you step-by-step through the various stages of a naive continuous delivery pipeline, including source control integration, artifact builds, and an infrastructure-as-code-style deployment. John concludes by demonstrating an optimized continuous delivery pipeline that incorporates advanced CodePipeline and CodeBuild techniques to reduce the overall build time and shrink the continuous delivery feedback loop while still realizing all of the benefits of an on-demand, ephemeral build system.
Sample code and infrastructure templates will be made available.
