Course Overview
Hi, this is Abhaya Chauhan, and welcome to my Pluralsight course, DynamoDB Playbook: In Production. This course is based on the Playbook format, which means each module is standalone, addressing a single problem and the solution to a specific task. I'm going to cover some problems that I've encountered or commonly seen when using DynamoDB and how they've been solved. After watching this course, you should have some tips and strategies when working with a service in production. Some of the topics we're going to cover are backing up and restoring data, supporting global applications with cross-region replication and global tables, monitoring DynamoDB, migrating to new tables in DynamoDB, and fine-grained access control. The prerequisites for this course are an understanding of the fundamentals of DynamoDB; Node. js, not all modules will involve code, but in the modules where I do touch code, I'll be using Node. js, I will assume you understand the basics of Node. js including promises and callbacks; creating and using AWS access tokens. As we will be using Node. js scripts with the AWS SDK in Command Prompt, I'll assume you're comfortable with setting up access tokens so you can leverage the AWS SDK from your Command Prompt or console, and you have a basic understanding of CloudFormation, as well as CloudWatch. I hope you'll join me on this journey to gain some useful tips and strategies with DynamoDB with this Pluralsight course, DynamoDB Playbook: In Production.

Course Introduction
Hi, this is Abhaya Chauhan, and welcome to the DynamoDB Playbook: In Production. This course is based on issues I've encountered or commonly seen other developers face when they're in production. This course is based on the Playbook format, which means each module is standalone, addressing a single problem and the solution to the specific task. In this course, I will assume you're comfortable with DynamoDB, and you are looking to gather some tips and strategies when working with a service in production. If you need to get up to speed with DynamoDB, I'd recommend another course on Pluralsight, Getting Started with DynamoDB. This Playbook is designed to complement that course, so it will fit in quite nicely. The modules and the demos will be based upon an application, which is followed on from my Getting Started with DynamoDB course. If you haven't seen the course, that's fine. Let's have a quick refresher on the application.
