Reasons to Learn AWS?

  • More and more enterprises are migrating their cloud applications to AWS. There is a huge demand for cloud professionals who can assist these organisations in the migration of their applications.

  • Cloud computing professionals have the edge over ordinary developers with basic coding skills. This type of computing plays a massive role in the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

  • AWS is currently the fastest-growing public cloud service provider. Therefore, it could provide exponential growth opportunities in the near future.

  • There are fewer skilled AWS professionals to suffice the current demand for professionals. Learning AWS could be a very reliable way to advance your career in cloud computing and embrace future technologies.

Course content

Make your career in the next big thing in cloud computing. More and more companies are moving to serverless computing as it enables them to build agile event driven distributed applications faster.

Java Serverless Cloud course is intended for students who wish to make career as a cloud developer whose main job will include developing event-driven, microservice-based applications on AWS cloud. Students wishing to enrol in this course should have knowledge of Java and web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In this course, you will learn about AWS Lambda concepts for ephemeral states, concurrency, cold and warm starts, event sources, memory and time-out settings, and invocation models.

As a capstone project, you will develop an application on the AWS Cloud by using various cloud tools like Amazon EventBridge, Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS), Amazon Kinesis, etc. We put emphasis on teaching best practices and writing performance driven Lambda functions. At the end of the capstone project, you will learn how to use AWS frameworks to deploy your serverless application on the AWS cloud. We take hands-on approach to teach complex topics in an easy manner.

In addition to the above, student will learn the three pillars of observability which are monitoring, tracing, and logging which help to keep control of cost, optimise performance, and application resilience. You will use AWS X-Ray to analyse and debug distributed applications and Amazon CloudWatch to monitor system performance.

Technologies Covered

AWS Lambda: AWS Lambda is a serverless, event-driven compute service which enable us to run code as backend service without provisioning or managing servers. Lambda can be triggered from over 200 AWS services and software as a service (SaaS) applications.

AWS S3: Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service which can be used to store various types of files. It promises scalability, data availability, security, and performance. Companies can store data for any use like data lakes, cloud-native applications, and mobile apps.

AWS SNS: Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) is a fully managed scalable messaging service. It is a pub/sub model which provides topics for high-throughput, push-based, many-to-many messaging between distributed systems, microservices, and event-driven serverless applications.

AWS SQS: Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a fully managed message queuing service. It allows us to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. SQS simplifies the management and operation of message-oriented middleware. SQS allows us to send, store, and receive messages between software components at any volume, without losing messages or requiring other services to be available.
