Developing on AWS

This course is designed to help individuals design and build secure, reliable and scalable AWS-based applications. In this course, we cover fundamental concepts and baseline programming for developing applications on AWS. We also show you how to work with AWS code libraries, SDKs, and IDE toolkits so that you can effectively develop and deploy code on the AWS platform.

Course Objectives

This course is designed to teach you how to:
• Set up the AWS SDK and developer credentials for Java, C#/.Net, Python, and JavaScript.
• Use the AWS SDK to interact with AWS services and develop solutions.
• Use Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon DynamoDB as data stores.
• Integrate applications and data by using Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS),
Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS), and Amazon Simple Workflow Service (Amazon SWF).
• Use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for service authentication.
