Learn To Build an App with the AWS Cloud

Course Objective 💪

You've probably already heard of cloud computing, aws, lambda functions, s3 buckets, but maybe have no idea what those things are. Good news! This course serve as an introduction to all of these things and more!

You'll learn how to deploy a cdk template, write your first lambda function, initialize a new s3 bucket to store your assets, save things in a NoSQL database called dynamoDB, connect a react application to your backend and deploy all of it to a CDN!

By the end of the course you'll not only have a good understanding of (some of) aws features, you'll also have a working application deployed live on the internet.

AWS CDK Project 🎓

After completing the course and absorbing all of this knowledge, the best way to solidify it is by using it!

Prerequisites ✅

During this course we're going to talk quite a bit about AWS Lambda, DynamoDB and we're going to play with AWS SAM a bit. This is not required but I think you will get more out of the course if you take a look at those resources first (don't worry - I will be explaining those concepts during the course as well):
