Lab Overview

AWS CodeStar is a development service that lets you focus on development while AWS CodeStar takes care of the source repository, builds, and deployments. It is team-ready with built-in roles for members to allow collaboration between owners, contributors, and viewers. AWS CodeStar includes an integrated project dashboard to easily understand the state of the project. All you need to do to begin is choose a project template that closely matches your needs. Then your development project will automatically leverage the highly available and scalable services provided by AWS.

This Lab takes you through getting a project started and illustrates the stages of an application's lifecycle in AWS CodeStar. The source control, automated build, and deployment capabilities are all included. You will also set up your AWS CodeStar project with members of a team to see how AWS CodeStar handles collaboration.
