Advanced Developing on AWS with AWS Jam (ADV-DEV-AWS-JAM)

 

Course Overview

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.

Who should attend

This course is intended for experienced software developers who are already familiar with AWS services.

Prerequisites

We recommend that attendees of this course have:

  • In-depth knowledge of at least one high-level programming language
  • Working knowledge of core AWS services and public cloud implementation
  • Completion of the Developing on AWS (AWSD) classroom training, and then a minimum of 6 months of application of those concepts in a real world environment

Course Objectives

In this course, you will:

  • 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
