TransformIT Learning’s DevOps AWS training & certification course has been designed to elucidate the most proven practices to use DevOps patterns to develop, deploy, and maintain applications on the highly scalable AWS platform. In AWS DevOps course, you will learn how to use the core principles of the DevOps methodology. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab exercises, you learn how to design and implement an infrastructure on AWS for the development of projects applicable to startup, small-medium business, and enterprise development scenarios.

On completion of the course you will be able to:
• Understand the fundamentals of DevOps methodology and utilize them for designing and implementing the DevOps projects
• Use AWS Ops Works and AWS Cloud Formation to deploy the infrastructure required for a software development project
• Work on Continuous Deployment use cases using AWS technologies, including A/B testing and blue/green deployment
• Analyze the best fit application deployment technology for a particular scenario among the array of AWS technologies, including AWS Code Deploy, AWS Ops Works, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and Amazon EC2 Container Service
• Deliver and monitor the performance of your application and environment for potential issues on AWS platform

Target audience
• Software Developers
• System Administrators

The intended candidates should pose the following skills:
• Hands-on administering Windows or Linux systems at the command-line level
• Working knowledge of any high level programming language (C#, Java, Python, Ruby)
• Experience of working on AWs both through AWS Command Line Interface and AWS Management Console
AWS provides a set of flexible services designed to enable companies to more rapidly and reliably build and deliver products. DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity.

AWS DevOps brings together development and operations to produce better applications and reduce the time it takes to improve and deploy them, and the Amazon Web Services that support it. For those not in the know of Linux, there is all the information you need to get up to speed on the Linux platform.
