If you’re developing applications in the cloud, setting up your entire coding infrastructure can be daunting. With AWS, you now have an option in AWS CodeStar that allows you to more quickly develop and deploy applications within the Amazon ecosystem.

What is AWS CodeStar?

AWS CodeStar allows you and your team to quickly set up an interface to manage all your software development activities from one place. This means you and your colleagues will worry less about your cloud-based infrastructure and more about whether or not your code is working as it should.

Each project that you create in AWS CodeStar will feature a project management dashboard that includes issue-tracking capabilities powered by Atlassian JIRA Software. This dashboard gives you full visibility throughout your software’s development cycle as well as the backlog of any open issues and details on recent code deployments.

How much does AWS cost?

As is the case with many AWS services, there are no additional charges for AWS CodeStar. You’ll only pay for the AWS resources that you provision, and never anything more related to CodeStar.

Top benefits of AWS CodeStar

Below are some of the many benefits you’ll enjoy when using the platform:

Manage software development activities in one place

With AWS CodeStar, easily track application activity as well as code commits, quality control tests, and deployments from one central dashboard. AWS CodeStar leverages Atlassian JIRA, which is a third-party project management and issue-tracking tool that allows you to easily handle software issues from your AWS CodeStar dashboard.

Shorten development time

With AWS CodeStar, you’ll no longer have to worry about the complex infrastructure and details involved with setting up your development environment. CodeStar enables you to easily build your entire development environment, including everything you’ll need for coding, building, testing, and deploying your code in the cloud. AWS CodeStar has premade templates for a variety of Amazon tools. The underlying services can be set up in minutes, which allows you and your team to more quickly code and deploy your applications.
