About the Bundle
Leverage best deployment practices for your PHP application and automate your server infrastructure on AWS with Ansible.
Deploying PHP Applications
The world for developers is becoming more and more agile. This increases the importance of having a great deploy process. Being able to adapt and react fast to changes is the way to stay agile. With a slow or complicated deploy process it becomes impossible to stay agile. You want to be able to respond fast to feedback and iterate with a fast and easy deploy (or rollback). That is the agile way.
A deploy is an important part of the software development process. Somehow it has been forgotten a bit in the PHP community. I hope to share my thoughts and experiences in this book to aid you in optimizing your deploy process. "Software rot" is something that happens to code if it's not maintained in a proper way. When it comes to deploy I call it "shipping rot". Let's try to stay away from that and treat our deploy process as any other important part of our applications.
You might be a developer. You might be the manager of or product owner to a team of developers. You will benefit from this whomever you might be. Whether you want to optimize the deploy process for technical or management reasons doesn't matter.
The style of the book will not be in the form of that you need to read the entire thing from start to finish. You could pick the areas where your process is suffering and focus on that. There will be both theory and technical implementation of the concepts.
This book is fully open source, you can find everything in the github repository: https://github.com/modess/deploying-php-applications, the book also has an external landing page here: http://www.deployingphpapplications.com/
Ansible for AWS
A simple way to provision and manage your Amazon Cloud infrastructure
Ansible is an IT automation tool. Learn how to use Ansible to easily provision and manage your Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud infrastructure. Automated infrastructure provisioning and management is a key component of Continuous Delivery and DevOps culture.
This book will show you how to use Ansible's cloud modules to easily provision and manage your AWS resources including EC2, VPC, RDS, S3, ELB, Auto Scaling, IAM and Route 53. This book takes you beyond the basics of Ansible, showing you real-world examples of AWS infrastructure automation and management using Ansible, with detailed steps, complete codes, and screen captures from AWS console. Also, learn how to use Ansible dynamic inventory to easily manage EC2 instances configuration.
The example projects will help you grasp the concepts quickly. From a single WordPress site to a highly available and scalable WordPress site, Ansible will help you automate all tasks.
Examples in this book are tested with the latest version of Ansible (2.1.x as of this writing).
