The latest in AWS, CodeBuild

As an enthusiast of cloud and cloud related technologies, I keep track of conferences and symposiums in this domain. AWS re: Invent is the biggest event in this regard by Amazon ( Amazon Web Services) The main event was held at Las Vegas from Nov 29 to Dec 2, 2016. The event is also educational as it showcases the latest updates and trends in AWS with keynote announcements. I was unable to be a part of the event, but followed the updates and happening over twitter, FB, Youtube and various other blogs.

Of the many new updates that was presented this year, CodeBuild Service caught my attention. In simple terms, the service automatically compile lines of code written by the developers and runs test cases on it. The service has the ability to run on lesser popular languages through a docker image.  CodeBuild work seamlessly with CodeCommit, CodePipeline and CodeDeploy i.e. other AWS tools for storing, building and deploying code.  The combined set of the above assist the developer in every stage of the code development, deployment and code updation

In tune with principle of cloud computing, the service is scalable and has the ability for automatic resource termination and instantiation, contrary to “set and forget” model. The service is charged by the minute. Codebuild currently works on Linux. Looking forward to windows support in the future.  Jordan Novet and Jeff Barr, your articles have been a big inspiration for me to have an uplcose look at CodeBuild.  I plan to work/experiment with the tool and shall post updates in the upcoming articles.
