Overall Satisfaction with AWS CodePipeline

CodePipeline is a very flexible continuous integration and continuous delivery tool. Our organization development team uses it to build and deploy our app; it makes deploying within the AWS environment a bit easier.
  • Works well within the AWS ecosystem.
  • Coordinates various continuous delivery steps.
  • Ease of use - things like CircleCI or other tools are a bit easier to learn.
  • Ability to build from more sources.
  • Same benefit any CI/CD system has - we're always delivering features.
  • Quicker feedback on developed features.
  • More investment was made into getting it set up.
They all pretty much have the same feature set. AWS CodePipeline has been improving in recent years, and it just makes sense to keep everything within Amazon's ecosystem.
It could be a little quicker at running its processes/stages. But it's reliable and backed by AWS so you know it doesn't go down often.
Like anything AWS, there is a steep learning curve involving permissions, new terminology, and a slightly confusing interface or CLI.
If you're already on AWS, then using it as your build/test/deploy system makes a lot of sense. However, there are easier tools out there to do it that may not be as flexible, or may work better with your source control system.
