AWS Developer Training Overview

Accelebrate's Developing on Amazon Web Services (AWS) training course teaches experienced developers how to build solutions that leverage AWS services. Attendees learn how to use the AWS Software Development Kits (AWS SDKs) and Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) to build and deploy their cloud applications. In addition, participants learn how to set permissions to the development environment, add business logic to process data using AWS core services, configure user authentication, deploy to the AWS cloud, and debug their applications.

Accelebrate is an AWS Training Partner (ATP) and this hands-on official AWS Classroom Training course is taught by an accredited Amazon Authorized Instructor (AAI).
