Building a sophisticated CodePipeline with CDK in a Monorepo Setup
Many companies are going all-in AWS and thus adopting their complete CodeSuite for their CI/CD processes. However, while CodePipeline is the platform for this process, it may not be the most user-friendly. In a Monorepo setup, it's typical to create multiple CI/CD pipelines for each package. However, there are several caveats to be aware of. For instance, you may encounter scenarios where multiple pipelines get triggered even if you just modified one file, or you may question the need to create multiple branches for each pipeline. In this talk, we provide valuable tips for building a sophisticated CodePipeline using CDK in a Monorepo environment. The techniques discussed in this talk are also transferrable to other CI/CD tools.
