During last week's AWS Summit, Amazon Web Services announced several new cloud computing tools for developers. They included the AWS Device Farm, which allows developers to test their apps on a variety of smartphones and tablets, and the Amazon API Gateway, a new cloud-based service for creating, managing and monitoring APIs.
Two other previously announced cloud development tools are now generally available: AWS CodeCommit is a Git-compatible revision control service, and AWS CodePipeline is a cloud-based continuous delivery service.
"Your organization, like most others, probably uses a variety of tools (open source and otherwise) as part of your build process," said Amazon's Jeff Barr. "The built-in integrations, along with those that are available from our partners, will allow you to use your existing tools in this new and highly automated workflow-driven world. You can also connect your own source control, build, test, and deployment tools to CodePipeline using the new custom action API.
