For thousands of companies, the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud is today's software development environment of choice. Now there's a complete guide to using DevOps and continuous delivery techniques on AWS -- so you can reliably deliver new features to users and customers at the click of a button.


First, leading software development consultant Paul Duvall concisely reviews DevOps' principles, culture, and goals. Next, using a realistic reference implementation, he offers detailed hands-on guidance on applying automation throughout the entire AWS cloud software delivery process. Finally, he presents up-to-date case studies of companies applying DevOps throughout their own modern development environments: from Netflix to AMC Health to the U.S. government.
