Course overview

The Advanced Developing on AWS course uses the real-world scenario of taking a legacy, on-premises monolithic application and refactoring it into a serverless microservices architecture. This three-day advanced course covers advanced development topics such as architecting for a cloud-native environment; deconstructing on-premises, legacy applications and repackaging them into cloud-based, cloud native architectures; and applying the tenets of the Twelve-Factor Application methodology.

Who should attend this training

This course is intended for:

  • Experienced software developers who are already familiar with AWS services

Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Analyze a monolithic application architecture to determine logical or programmatic break points where the application can be broken up across different AWS services

  • Apply Twelve-Factor Application manifesto concepts and steps while migrating from a monolithic architecture

  • Recommend the appropriate AWS services to develop a microservices based cloud-native application

  • Use the AWS API, CLI, and SDKs to monitor and manage AWS services

  • Migrate a monolithic application to a microservices application using the 6 Rs of migration

  • Explain the SysOps and DevOps interdependencies necessary to deploy a microservices application in AWS


We recommend that attendees of this course have:

  • In-depth knowledge of at least one high-level programming language

  • Working knowledge of core AWS services and public cloud implementation

  • Completion of Developing on AWS, and then a minimum of six months of applying those concepts in a real-world environment
