Why study this course

This three-day advanced course uses the real-world scenario of taking a legacy, on-premises monolithic application and refactoring it into a serverless microservices architecture.

The 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.

  • 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
