Advanced Developing on AWS

Duration : 3 Day (24 Hours)

Advanced Developing on AWS Course Overview:

In the Advanced Developing on AWS course, participants are immersed in a practical scenario where they transform a legacy, on-premises monolithic application into a serverless microservices architecture. This three-day advanced course delves into advanced development concepts and techniques specific to cloud-native environments.

Key topics covered include:

  1. Architecting for a cloud-native environment: Participants learn how to design and build applications that fully leverage the benefits of cloud computing. They explore best practices for scalability, fault tolerance, and high availability in a cloud-native architecture.
  2. Deconstructing and repackaging legacy applications: The course guides participants in breaking down traditional on-premises applications into smaller, decoupled microservices. They learn how to repackage and migrate these components to cloud-based architectures, leveraging the flexibility and scalability of cloud resources.
  3. Applying the Twelve-Factor Application methodology: The course emphasizes the principles of the Twelve-Factor Application methodology, which provides guidelines for building modern, cloud-native applications. Participants learn how to apply these principles to ensure portability, scalability, and maintainability in their applications.

By the end of the course, participants will have gained advanced skills and knowledge in developing applications for cloud-native environments. They will be proficient in deconstructing and refactoring legacy applications, repackaging them into scalable, cloud-based architectures. Additionally, participants will be well-versed in applying the principles of the Twelve-Factor Application methodology to enhance their application development practices on AWS.
