Developing Serverless Solutions on AWS Course Overview

Modern applications are built serverless-first, a strategy that prioritizes the adoption of serverless services, so you can increase agility throughout your application stack. Serverless is a type of application that eliminates all infrastructure management, simplifying the developer experience. Going serverless is an amazing experience and this training gives you all the knowledge required to explore its fullest potential.
The 3-day intermediate course about Developing Serverless Solutions on AWS trains you with the best practices for building serverless applications in the AWS serverless platform. This course includes presentations, hands-on labs, demonstrations, videos, knowledge checks, and group exercises.

Course Curriculum


This course is intended for:

  • Developers who have some familiarity with serverless and experience with development in the AWS Cloud.

Eligibility Criteria

We recommend that attendees of this course have:

  • Familiarity with the basics of AWS Cloud architecture
  • An understanding of developing applications on AWS equivalent to completing the Developing on AWS classroom training
