This course follows on the concepts learned in Developing on AWS concerting legacy systems into a serverless microservices architecture.

This three-day advanced course covers advanced development topics such as architecting for a cloud-native environment; deconstructing on-premises, legacy applications and repackaging them into cloud-based, cloud-native architectures; and applying the tenets of the Twelve-Factor Application methodology.

This course includes AWS Training Exclusives.


  • Analyze a monolithic application architecture to determine logical or programmatic break points where the application can be broken up across different AWS services.
