Integrate Code, Build Artifact, and Manage release. If you know the pain of the process you will look into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) CodeBuild. Maintaining a project developed by many team members concurrently which is composed of different functions, environment, and languages, AWS CodeBuild is here to help you.
AWS CodeBuild is a fully managed build service. AWS CodeBuild lets an IT developer to automate and manage server builds for applications that is present in in the AWS public cloud. From the specified location of the source code, you can select your build settings, and CodeBuild will run build scripts. There are no servers to scale and provision, or software to install, configure, and operate.
AWS CodeBuild now provides notifications when your software builds change their state. This makes it simple to track the status of your builds removing the need to set up API polls. AWS CodeBuild applies Docker containers to build your code depending on your environment. You can build environments provided by AWS or existing Docker images from Elastic Container Registry or Docker hub. At present AWS provides build environments for Java, Android, Ruby, Go, Node.js, Python, and Docker. All your command line output is streamed into AWS management console during the build process.
There is no upfront costs or minimum fees. You pay only for the resources you use.
Build minutes = 100 builds * 5 minutes = 500 build minutes
Build minutes – Free tier build minutes = Monthly billable build minutes = 500 – 100 = 400 build minutes
Monthly build charges = 400 build minutes * $0.005 = $2
