I'm impressed. A huge amount of development went into this book and it's obvious from the way this book is organized that Cerri went to a lot of effort to do this the right way. It's very useful to me as a cloud services integrator. I also find the bits of "programmer angst" humorous, having worked with a lot of software engineers over the years. The book is useful to anyone who is looking for the cleanest, most consistent way to deploy resources into AWS.
This book is excellent. Its not just about the scripts - you learn a lot about good AWS security practice and the author has done a great job.If you're involved in using AWS resources for your web app, this book is highly recommended, even if you don't end up using the supplied scripts.
Great book. By following his example, this book inspired me to automate many aspects of my own deployment, even though I use the Node.js AWS API instead of bash scripts, Postgres instead of MySQL, and nginx instead of Apache. I've been able to write Node.js scripts to create and configure different types of machines, fully automated. By seeing a full set of scripts beginning to end, you see all the parts that need to work together for a full deployment. The appendix of bash script tips is a great crash course in effective bash scripting. I wish I'd had it back when I was doing more bash scripting.
I picked up this book a couple of years ago when it was shiny and new. I was moving from classic Unix Systems/Network Administration into Cloud Administration at the time. I had been hammering myself against the AWS framework without really understanding how the pieces fit together. And while AWS docs can be extensive, they tend to read like the Oracle at Delphi prophecies at times.This book solved the framework understanding issue. By following the bash scripts, I could clearly see how the networks were being built and intertwining. Since getting this book, I've progressed far into the AWS architecture world.A huge thank you to Christian for providing something real other than the fluff books that I'd found at the time to describe the architecture layout in a way that an old school Unix sysadmin could sink some teeth into. Yes, there are now other frameworks that work as well as plain scripting. But if you are brand new to Cloud but know how to script, this isn't a bad place to start the journey.
As rightly mentioned in this book, documenting and remembering what is what later on is one of the biggest complication in the amazing aws platform. Sooner than later you will realize that the assets you have created have become a nightmare to manage and replicate. Refactoring your meticulously architectured work can save days of trouble. This is not a book, this is a well documented collection of scripts to automate everything, full stop.
a must for anyone performing mid to large scale deployments
