This hands on course shows how to use the AWS (Amazon Web Services) SDK to develop secure and scalable cloud applications. The course provides in-depth knowledge about how to interact with AWS using code and includes coverage of architectural concepts, best practices, and troubleshooting tips.

The course includes techniques for optimizing the use of the AWS Cloud by understanding AWS services and how these services fit into a cloud solution. Your architectural solution may differ depending on industry and size of business. Because there is no one-size-fits-all design, this course highlights some AWS Cloud design patterns to help you learn some of the common options for overall cloud design.


Students should have a familiarity with AWS services and working knowledge with a language such as of Java, C#/.NET or Python. Students should also have a working knowledge of multi-tier architectures and cloud computing concepts.
