Based on the experiences of multiple Thoughtworks teams we suggest approaching AWS CodePipeline with caution. Specifically, we've found that once teams move beyond simple pipelines, this tool can become hard to work with. While it may seem like a "quick win" when first starting out with AWS, we suggest taking a step back and checking whether AWS CodePipeline will meet your longer-term needs, for example, pipeline fan-out and fan-in or more complex deployment and testing scenarios featuring nontrivial dependencies and triggers.
