FreecodeCamp has released this great-sounding class on developing for the AWS platform, which is of interest regardless of whether or not you're looking to get the AWS Associate certificate. We take a detailed look.
As more and more businesses move onto the cloud to take advantage of PaaS/IaaS and reduce their operating costs, their developers will find themselves one way or the other, soon or later, bound to work on a Cloud platform. And AWS is the most likely since it's the most popular.
So FreecodeCamp again on call here have made a new series on the whole spectrum of AWS certificates.In line with its well-known generosity the courses are free, so you don't have to pay in order to prepare for the certificate but just have to pay the price of the exam.
Three parts are now ready, AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner, AWS Solutions Architect Associate and AWS Developer Associate, the latest one which is the focus of this report.
The guide comes as two Youtube videos, the first lasting a whooping 12 hours while the second 4, so make sure that you stock up on coffee.
What will your learn during those 16 hours? Many topics that a developer in building, securing and deploying web applications for the AWS platform should master. As such a typical AWS Developer would be able to work seamlessly in 5 different domains:
Domain 1: Deployment
1.1 Deploy written code in AWS using existing CI/CD pipelines, processes, and patterns
Domain 2: Security
2.1 Make authenticated calls to AWS services
Domain 3: Development with AWS Services
3.1 Write code for serverless applications
Domain 4: Refactoring
4.1 Optimize application to best use AWS services and features
Domain 5: Monitoring and Troubleshooting
5.1 Write code that can be monitored
They also need knowledge in DynamoDB, understand the NoSql serverless dbms preferred for building Microservices, be familiar with Elastic Beanstalk, an environment used to deploy traditional architectures to AWS and in AWS CLI and AWS SDK.
As far as the exam itself goes, it is a multiple choice with multiple answers, lasts for 130 minutes and costs $150.
Now to the videos.Both have been made by Andrew Brown, CEO of ExamPro. He talks in detail about the following:
While I haven't watched the full 12 + 4 hours of the video (yet) from the sample I've seen it looks like a carefully planned course
As I said in the beginning, it really doesn't matter whether you are looking for the certificate or not.The material is interesting as it is and while I'm not intending to take the exam, I am planning to watch the lot as its useful knowledge that might come handy in the very near future...
