Development Environment For Teams with Docker

Portable, reusable, and no collision with locally installed versions!

Continuous Deployment Pipeline

Update our code -> push to Github -> have it deploy across our infrastructure.

Continuous Deployment Pipeline
service oriented architecture

Service Oriented Architecture

Keeping our services (apps) separated for scalable deploys and sane development. Starring Node and React (although any application stack can be used!).

Fault Tolerant, Load Balanced and AutoScaling Infrastructure on AWS

Everyone says "you won't need it yet," but you want it. And know you'll need it.

Along side all of the practical implementation, we'll also deeply explore the topics conceptually and technically. What's the point of having a list of steps you don't understand? That you can't extend to your needs?

The goal here is to give you a full blueprint that you can use for your own purposes. So that you can stop piecing together Frankenstein stacks by piecing together parts of one tutorial and parts of another. And then having all of it just barely work.

Oh, and one more thing. I promise we'll never say "You wouldn't do this in production."

"Zero to Production with services, a team and the Cloud. How do you get there?"

This is what I set out to solve after a long, frustrated journey toiling through crappy guides, docs, and patchwork tutorials. It's like everyone was trying to keep this stuff a secret or something. Materials were either:

  • outdated
  • incoherent, entertaining-as-a-rock
  • official documentation
  • for AWS Certifications

...None, which pulled me into actually understanding why and how to build a professional infrastructure for modern service applications.

So, like many other cloud professionals out there, I just went to work and figured it out on my own through actual usage. And it was pretty painful. The feedback loop is so long with infrastructure, that learning quickly is often impossible (wait for deploy with new configuration ... check for success).

This is distilling what I've learned over the years into a full blueprint. My hopes are that you can learn in hours what took me ... well, a very long time. That you'll take this, extend it, and put it to great use.

Now this isn't some "get certified" or glossary course. This is "how would I actually do this stuff if someone hired me, or if I wanted to build a new application?" and WHY.
