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.

We also offer a one-day AWS Jam Session to complement this course and enhance your learning. The AWS Jam is a gamified event, with teams competing to score points by completing a series of challenges based on concepts covered in the course.
