About this course

Skip About this course

In this course, you’ll get prepared to begin your career architecting solutions on AWS. Through a series of use case scenarios and practical learning, you’ll learn to identify services and features to build resilient, secure, and highly available IT solutions in the AWS Cloud. Each week, a fictional customer will present a different need. We will then review the options, choose the best one for the use case and walk you through the architecture design on a whiteboard. You’ll learn about event-driven architectures with a focus on performance efficiency and cost. You’ll then gain knowledge on how to architect a solution using many purpose-built AWS services. With this understanding, you’ll get a sense of hybrid architectures with a refined focus on reliability and operational efficiency. Finally, you’ll wrap up your learning by understanding a multi-account strategy centered on security and cost.
