Getting Started with AWS CodePipeline and CrossBrowserTesting
For this document, we provide an example Lambda Function located in our AWS CodePipline Github Repository.
AWS CodePipeline is a continuous delivery tool that lets you automate your development process quickly, safely, and at scale. Through AWS CodePipeline’s integration with many other AWS and third party services such as ECS, S3, Elastic Beanstalk, CloudFormation, GitHub, and Jenkins, every time you commit code, a build is created and automatically run, allowing you to test every commit.
