Architecting Solutions on AWS
Learn crucial skills to help you become a solutions architect
On this four-week 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. You’ll then review the options, choose the best one for the use case, and be guided through the architecture design on a whiteboard. This practical approach will ensure you finish the course with the understanding to use the AWS Cloud to its full potential.
