Advanced Developing on AWS with AWS Jam


The Advanced Developing on AWS course uses the real-world scenario of taking a legacy, on-premises monolithic application and refactoring it into a serverless microservices architecture. This four-day advanced course covers advanced development topics such as architecting for a cloud-native environment; deconstructing on-premises, legacy applications and repackaging them into cloud-based, cloud native architectures; and applying the tenets of the Twelve-Factor Application methodology.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Advanced Developing on AWS course uses the real-world scenario of taking a legacy, on-premises monolithic application and refactoring it into a serverless microservices architecture. This four-day advanced course covers advanced development topics such as architecting for a cloud-native environment; deconstructing on-premises, legacy applications and repackaging them into cloud-based, cloud native architectures; and applying the tenets of the Twelve-Factor Application methodology.

The final day is an AWS Jam, a gamified event, with teams competing to score points by completing a series of challenges according to established best practices based on concepts covered in the course. You get to experience a wide range of AWS services in a series of real-world scenarios that represent common operational and troubleshooting tasks. The end result is developing, enhancing, and validating your skillsets in the AWS Cloud through real-world problem solving, exploring new services, features, and understanding how they interoperate.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Analyze a monolithic application architecture to determine logical or programmatic break points where the application can be broken up across different AWS services
  • Apply Twelve-Factor Application manifesto concepts and steps while migrating from a monolithic architecture
  • Recommend the appropriate AWS services to develop a microservices based cloud-native application
  • Use the AWS API, CLI, and SDKs to monitor and manage AWS services
  • Migrate a monolithic application to a microservices application using the 6 Rs of migration
  • Explain the SysOps and DevOps interdependencies necessary to deploy a microservices application in AWS
  • Work in a team environment to solve real AWS use-case challenges in an AWS Jam

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This course is intended for:

  • experienced software developers who are already familiar with AWS services
