Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll use Docker to set up a pipeline for a cloud-hosted e-commerce store from scratch. You’ll start by creating a private repository using AWS CodeCommit, CodeBuild project, and a CodePipeline to automate pushing Docker images to your ECR repository. Finally, you’ll establish blue/green deployments with CodeDeploy and test your functionality by deploying some live code to build a live understanding of zero-downtime type of deployments.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
