NOTE: This course has been retired because it uses AWS CDK v1. Navigate to version 2 of the course here

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 you'll learn:
