Developing high-performance web applications in the real world requires the use of a cloud provider, and Amazon Web Services is widely recognized as the leader in cloud technology. In this course, AWS Developer: Getting Started, you will learn how to develop applications that utilize many of the services in AWS. You will also deploy applications to EC2 with Elastic Beanstalk, store and retrieve data in RDS and DynamoDB, and architect infrastructure with CloudFormation. When you're finished with this course, you will have experience working with AWS services that will help you as you work on your own applications. The AWS Management Console in this course may be a previous version, but the concepts have been reviewed and are technically accurate and up-to-date.
Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Ryan Lewis, and welcome to my course AWS Developer: Getting Started. I'm a web engineer at Expedia, and I work with AWS every day. Amazon Web Services is the largest cloud provider in the world and is estimated to generate more revenue than its three biggest competitors combined. With customers like Netflix, Dropbox, and Expedia, this should come as no surprise. In this course, we are going to learn the fundamentals of developing and deploying web applications to AWS. Some of the major topics that we will cover include deploying scalable applications using EC2 and Elastic Beanstalk, storing static content in S3 and edging it with CloudFront, creating reproducible infrastructure with CloudFormation templates, and using managed databases with RDS and DynamoDB. By the end of this course, you'll feel comfortable developing your own applications with AWS. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with how web applications work, and it may help to have some experience with Node.js. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Amazon Web Services with the AWS Developer: Getting Started course at Pluralsight.
