Building and Deploying Your First API in Python

This four part series will guide you through building your first RESTful API and deploying it on Amazon EC2 instances. We walk through every part of stubbing out and building an API, from writing YAML to an ElasticSearch backend, then our server deployment scripts.

Part One – Building the API skeleton with YAML
Part Two – From YAML to ElasticSearch
Part Three – Writing Chef Scripts for Amazon Deployment
Part Four – Writing Fabric Scripts for Code Deployment

If you prefer to skip ahead, the code for everything is already finished and available at github, and so are the Chef scripts.

Feel free to contribute back any changes you make. The raw HTML to for this complete tutorial will be up on Github soon for you to fork and contribute back an errors or omissions I made.
