Part 1 - Hands-On: Deploy a Microservice to AWS with one click

#

In this tutorial series we are going to deploy a microservice to the Amazon Web Services Cloud with one click. In order to do so, we are going to set up our AWS Account and configure CodeCommit, S3, SNS/SQS and ECR to fit our requirements. Then we are going to use the microservice provided by Spring's Spring Boot Docker example and modify Amazon's Reference Architecture for CloudFormation to deploy our service. To connect Jenkins to AWS we are going to use different plugins that act as interfaces.
