Look inside

Your assignment as lead DevOps engineer is to deploy a REST API Flask application into AWS Fargate. You already have the application code and the docker-compose file to run the API locally. You’ll package the code in CDK, build the images, store them in Elastic Container Registry (ECR), then use them for deployment in Fargate. When you’re finished, you’ll have practical experience deploying a Flask application, as well as a solid understanding of some of the services Fargate requires for deployment.

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