Our series of tutorials on Python-Django will include the use of several AWS Developer tools.  Therefore, we want to take a look at those from a high-level before we get very far in the material.  This presentation skims over the ones we will be using, along with a few that may prove useful in your projects.  None of these services are required for this series, nor do you need to follow up with other episodes to get an understanding of these tools.  However, we will be showing some examples as the series progresses.

A Quick Tour

Amazon provides some excellent tutorials for each of their services.  This presentation tries to take those highlights a little deeper.  We look at the following services and how they will help us during this series.

  • CodeCommit
  • CodeArtifact
  • CodeBuild
  • CodePipeline
  • Cloud9
  • CodeStar
  • CodeDeploy

Our primary focus will be CodeCommit.  However, we will be referring to some of these others directly as we move through the series.  Take advantage of the free tier to use these AWS Developer tools without racking up a sizeable development bill.

The Mentor-Mastermind Group

This series comes from our mentoring/mastermind classes.  These classes are virtual meetings that focus on how to improve our technical skills and build our businesses.  The goals of each member vary.  However, this diversity makes for great discussions and a ton of educational value every time we meet.  We hope you enjoy viewing this series as much as we enjoy creating it.  As always, this may not be all new to you, but we hope it helps you be a better developer.  Drop us a line to find out when the next one is so you can join our group.
