AWS is one of the fastest growing public cloud platforms out there. With hundreds of available service, only sky is the limit! But, where do you start from? How can you combine those services to create a reliable, highly available, scalable and performant web and mobile applications? Once you create your application, how do you monitor it? How do you operate it? What about changes, how to create code pipelines to deliver new features?
AWS services are great LEGO-like pieces that are well explained and documented individually. But when you start combining them together you quickly start realising there is not much material out there where you can start from. Then you start looking at different blogs, looking for answers at StackOverflow, looking for help on forums, etc...
AWS Playground shows you how to design, implement, run and maintain web and mobile applications on AWS by using configurable architecture with CI/CD pipeline ready for you to start developing immediately.
