Course Description

This course focuses on taking real applications from on-premises, and then leveraging AWS technology in the code itself and also then leveraging AWS technology to automate the deployment process, whilst taking into account security, AWS platform features, and tools to facilitate the automation of build and deployment of your infrastructure. The course looks at how you can use S3, EC2, Docker and ECS, RDS, Dynamo DB, but in the context of some real-world problems. The course also can help prepare you for the AWS System Operations, Architecting, and Developing Associate Exams.

This session takes the form of some lectures along with demonstrations and exercises to consolidate the content being taught. It also involves a substantial workshop component where students deploy an application to the cloud.
