Amazon AWS is one of the most popular cloud providers in the world, but it can also be daunting to learn thanks to the alphabet soup of service acronyms.

Once you've figured out which subset of services to use, you've got a lot of clicking around to do in order to get things configured.

Not anymore!

With the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK), you are able to configure AWS services from your terminal & editor.

Even better, you can do your configuration, frontend, and backend all with the same language.

In this course, Tomasz Łakomy will guide you through using TypeScript to complete the lifecycle of an application powered by AWS CDK. You'll see how to start a project, develop it locally, deploy it globally, then tear it all down when you're done.

The services & development approach Tomasz demonstrates in this course are used by countless companies around the world.

Is yours next?

    What did you like about this course?

    very nice lecture, i'd have like to see how to implement the CI/CD part, where if you update the frontend of backend, it triggers a build & deploy using codebuild for exemple, getting the code from github or codecommit. Thanks Tomasz, best, Kevin

    What did you like about this course?

    This is just a great course for seeing the whole process all the way through. The only critique, which would be easily fixed in the discussion section, is that there are tiny breaking changes since the course was recorded, but I've been overwhelmed by where to start in AWS and this was exactly what I needed.

    I did not know this existed. This makes it very easy to work with cloudformation setups instead of yaml files. Your course is setup in a good way to grasp the concepts easily. Thank you.

    What was your strongest take away from this collection?

    The course was very helpful. Need to emphasis more that the git repository is really needed to use this course, as some of the videos are out of date. The branches in git are in alphabetic order not course orde. Perhaps a chapter numbering scheme could be implemented so that the right branch for the right lesson is easier to find.

    What did you like about this course?

    As most of 🥚 courses it’s short and concise. The aws was very vogue to me. I started to learn aws amplify from another course. This made me learn what’s going on behind scene.
