Cloud computing has provided a raft of changes the way teams design & deploy applications for their clients. Options now exist that simply were not available before the emergence of cloud computing platforms such as AWS and Azure.

This workshop covers all the primary activities and technologies involved in designing, deploying and securing applications on an AWS platform. In addition to deployment and security, we also cover data as a service and infrastructure as a service.


Learning Objectives

You will learn how to:
▪ Work with cloud servers within a cloud environment.
▪ Work with Amazon Machine Images (AMIs)
▪ Use Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and the Aurora relational database.
▪ Configure secure applications and use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for service authentication.
▪ Configure Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) tools to work with serverless architectures.
▪ Implement microservice based applications using AWS Lambdas



▪ No prior knowledge of cloud platforms is assumed
▪ Familiarity with a programming language (Java, .NET, Python) is required
