Course duration: 3 Days


Course Objective:

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 three-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.



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 classroom training, and then a minimum of 6 months of application of those concepts in a real world environment



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