Are you a software developer looking to further your knowledge of AWS and their cloud-based system? We have created this course with intermediate-level developers in mind to give them a better understanding of AWS, and how to use their SDK (software development kit). The AWS SDK is a kit for browser-based development, this allows developers to access AWS through running code (usually JavaScript) in a browser.

Along with learning the key concepts of AWS, the best practices, and how to troubleshoot, we will also teach you Identity and Access Management (iAM), Amazon storage systems, how to use identity framework for authentication, using ElastiCache for application scalability. 3 months of lab access is also included with this course.

This course teaches experienced developers how to programmatically interact with AWS services to build web solutions. It guides you through a high-level architectural discussion on resource selection and dives deep into using the AWS Software Development Kits (AWS SDKs) and Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) to build and deploy your cloud applications. You will build a sample application during this course, learning how to set up permissions to the development environment, adding business logic to process data using AWS core services, configure user authentications, deploy to AWS cloud, and debug to resolve application issues. The course includes code examples to help you implement the design patterns and solutions discussed in the course. The labs reinforce key course content and help you to implement solutions using the AWS SDK for Python, .Net, and Java, the AWS CLI, and the AWS Management Console.
