How did it start?
“Hey, I need you to create a CodeBuild project for me.”
I turned around from my computer screen to see my boss walking towards me. We had just moved into our new office and everyone was still getting used to the change. It had only been two weeks, but it felt like forever.
“Sure thing,” I said as I got up from my chair. “What do you need?”
He handed me a sheet of paper with all the details on it. “We want to create a custom image for CodeBuild that will include all of our company’s dependencies.”
I nodded as I started to understand what he was asking. “Do you have any existing scripts or code we can use as a template?”
He shook his head. “No, we need something completely new.”
So I started working on the project to create the Build Project with the custom image. The software which we were using was working over the golang.
Today, here I am going to create a build project with a custom image of golang’s latest version. Because default runtime environment images for the code build support the limited versions of the golang upto 1.16 (by the writing of this Article). I want to use the latest golang’s version.
