About the course

Need a secure sign-in for your users? Would you like to allow your users to sign in using social identity providers? Do you need to sync sign-ins across multiple devices? In this course, you will learn how Amazon Cognito can provide access to all 3 features.

Together, we will take a stroll through Amazon Cognito and learn the basics, features, and pricing. We will pull it all together and create a custom domain in a lab specifically designed to provide a real-world application of Amazon Cognito. Once you have completed the course, quiz yourself on the topics covered to ensure that you take the knowledge with you as you continue your AWS journey.

This course is for students who have a thorough understanding of AWS services and concepts, especially AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), AWS Certificate Manager (ACM), S3, CloudFront, and Route 53.
