Before we get started, we will check the workshop prerequisites.

The workshop environment will drop you into an example development team, at the start of their journey through the DevSecOps world. They already use infrastructure as code (IaC) to define their environments, and the deployment target is a Kubernetes cluster, which is also setup.

To get the most out of this workshop, it will also be helpful to have a basic understanding of Git, Kubernetes, AWS core concepts (IAM, regions, UI, CLI, APIs), and CI/CD principles.

Next we’ll ensure we have all the items needed:

  • An AWS account to run the workshop (a personal account or one provided via AWS Event Engine for AWS events)
  • A Bridgecrew Account
  • A GitHub Account
  • The automation to set up our Kubernetes, CI/CD, and workshop scenarios (we’ll provide that coming up)
