Introduction Beginning Devops Aws iOS Development
Basics of iOS Application Development
This chapter is intended for beginners in iOS application development. If you are an iOS developer or have experience developing iOS applications, it can be skipped.
To develop iOS apps, Apple provides several tools and resources. iOS apps can be developed in native programming languages such as Swift or Objective-C and other cross-platform languages.
In this chapter, I will cover the requirements and basic building blocks of Beginning Devops Aws iOS Development application development while also walking you through the procedure by building a sample application with Swift and testing the application on an iOS device and iOS simulators.
DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
DevOps has been defined differently across the industry, but all these definitions mostly point to the same principles. AWS defines DevOps as follows:
DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure man- agement processes.
The primary goal of the DevOps concept is to improve software development lifecycle. To accomplish this, it introduces different methodologies, tooling, processes, etc.
AWS has a rich offering of tooling for various aspects of DevOps, it also integrates with third-party tools to give users a wide range of options for practicing DevOps on AWS. In this chapter, I will cover some basic AWS Cloud concepts, then we will explore the main tools and technology available on AWS for practicing DevOps. I will give an introduction into.
macOS Server on AWS
Traditionally, iOS application developers must purchase hardware macOS workstations or servers to develop iOS applications because these apps can only be built, tested, and deployed on an Beginning Devops Aws iOS Development operating system. This limits developer’s ability to integrate cloud native solutions into their development process, thereby not harnessing the power of the cloud.
The Amazon EC2 Mac instance removed these limitations, and in this chapter, we will dive into the different options of deploying it to start using it for your iOS app development.
Integrating AWS CodeCommit with Jenkins
When application source code is stored in AWS CodeCommit for source control, it can be integrated with other build and test systems for continuous integration such that when new commits are made in the source repository, automated build and/or test is triggered.
In this chapter Beginning Devops Aws iOS Development, we will see how AWS CodeCommit can be integrated with Jenkins using Jenkins plugins. With this integration, iOS application build jobs can be set up on Jenkins using AWS CodeCommit for source control where build is triggered on Jenkins when code is committed to AWS CodeCommit.
