AWS re:Invent 2017: Building CI/CD Pipelines for Serverless Applications (SRV302) – #AWS

Building and deploying serverless applications introduces new challenges for developers whose development workflows are optimized for traditional VM-based applications. In this session, we discuss a method for automating the deployment of serverless applications running on AWS Lambda. We first cover how you can model and express serverless applications using the open-source AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM). Then, we discuss how you can use CI/CD tooling from AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild, and how to bootstrap the entire toolset using AWS CodeStar. We will also cover best practices to embed in your deployment workflow specific to serverless applications.

You will also hear from iRobot about its approach to serverless deployment. iRobot will share how it achieves coordinated deployments of microservices, maintains long-lived and/or separately-managed resources (like databases), and red/black deployments.
