Course Overview (Music) Hi everyone. My name is Ryan Lewis, and welcome to my course, Demystifying the AWS Certified Developer: Associate Exam. I've been architecting and developing applications in AWS for many years in my work for large enterprises as a senior engineer, and I've also taken and passed the AWS Certified Developer Associate Exam multiple times over the years. Developers don't usually need to obtain certifications these days, since most of the skills required can be demonstrated with whiteboard coding. But AWS is a powerhouse in the industry now, and more and more developers are required to be experts in AWS. How can a developer show they have knowledge of something that can't easily be demonstrated on a whiteboard or with questions? The answer is by obtaining the AWS Certified Developer Associate Certification. This certification is an objective indicator that a person is truly an AWS expert, and they can back up what's on their resume. In this course, we are going to walk through how to prepare and pass the exam. I'll provide detailed information on what you need to study, as well as what to expect when taking the exam. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to obtain hands-on experience in AWS, what courses and reading you should study, how to use the exam guide, and what type of questions to expect on the exam. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid framework to follow to prepare and excel at the exam. Before beginning this course, you should have a good understanding of AWS services and have some experience using them. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to prepare for the exam, with the Demystifying the AWS Certified Developer: Associate Exam course, at Pluralsight.
