About the course

This course can be used as a stand-alone learning module but is also a mini-course and the first in a learning path that will prepare the student for the AWS Certified DevOps Engineer Professional exam.

The mini-course has 3 sections, and the first section defines DevOps and the DevOps engineer professions. Section 1 goes on to define CI/CD automation, Disaster Recovery techniques, and Blue/Green Deployments. These are key concepts the DevOps Engineer must master for both the profession and the certification exam.

The second section of the course takes a deep dive on the AWS Developer Tools suite and its core components: CodeCommit, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy, and CodePipeline. These services are covered heavily in the DevOps Pro certification exam and warrant the detail and attention given in this section.

The final section revisits Blue/Green deployments in greater detail, as the topic is heavily covered on the exam, and also covers key topics related to Blue/Green deployments: Canary Deployments and A/B Testing.
Again, this course is designed to stand on its own or be the first in a series of mini-courses in preparation for the DevOps Pro exam.

What you will need

  • AWS has remove the prerequisite of having at least one of the AWS Associate level certifications. However, this is a very challenging exam and it is highly recommended to have gotten at least one Associate level certification prior to sitting for the DevOps Professional exam.

What are Hands-on Labs

What's the difference between theoretical knowledge and real skills? Practical real-world experience. That's where Hands-on Labs come in! Hands-on Labs are guided, interactive experiences that help you learn and practice real-world scenarios in real cloud environments. Hands-on Labs are seamlessly integrated in courses, so you can learn by doing.
