AWS Developer: Deploying on AWS

Amazon via edX


In this course, part of the AWS Developer Series, you will learn how to use DevOps methodologies and tools. You will build and test your application using AWS Cloud9, and deploy to your cloud-based infrastructure with AWS Elastic Beanstalk. You will create a continuous integration/continous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline using AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeCommit, and AWS CodePipeline.

You will monitor your application and deployment using Amazon Cloudwatch, and create dashboards using Amazon Elasticsearch and Kibana to gather and catalog performance metrics.

This course has a significant hands-on component. Throughout the class, you will perform exercises using the AWS services covered.

Class discussions provide an opportunity for you to interact with fellow students as well as AWS training staff.
