This course combines Architecting on AWS and Advanced Architecting on AWS to offer a comprehensive, immersive course in cloud architecture. It covers all aspects of how to architect for the cloud over 5 days. You will learn how to design cloud architectures, starting small and working to large-scale enterprise level designs—and everything in between. Starting with the Well Architected Framework, you will be immersed in AWS services like compute, storage, database, networking, security, monitoring, automation, optimization, benefits of de-coupling applications and serverless, building for resilience, and understanding costs. Using hands-on labs, you will apply knowledge from lectures to gain skills.

Instructor was very knowledgeable across multiple topics. Very impressive. I plan on recommending this course to my co-workers.

Craig is very knowledgeable on these subjects. I also like the Lab. It is really good.

Instructor was awesome, you can tell he has a depth and mastery of the subject matter that goes well beyond what was covered in the course.

This course was amazing, craig was amazing and answered every question i had (i had a lot) in a very detailed manner and went and showed me things in the console if he could.

Already suggested this course to two of my workmates and they are going to take it as well.

The instructor was very knowledgeable. He also took the time to answer student questions. The pace and format of the class worked very well!
