In the course AWS Cloud Development participants learn to use Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the development of Cloud Applications and Services. AWS is a widely used Cloud Platform that allows companies and individuals to run applications based on a Pay as You go model in AWS server farms.
The AWS Cloud Development course kicks off with an overview of the key services offered by AWS. This includes Compute, Storage and Free Services as well as Virtual Servers. The AWS Architecture, availability zones and the pricing model are also discussed.
Then it is time for a coverage of the use of EC2 instances. EC2 instances are VPCs that are based on Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) but that can be set up entirely at your own discretion. Making connections, allocating storage and the security of EC2 are treated.
Next the AWS orchestration service Elastic Beanstalk on which applications can be deployed is discussed. EBS supports various programming languages and offers services such as load balancing, auto scaling and security with a firewall.
The use of databases in the AWS Cloud is also part of the program of the course. The Relational Database Service is central to this and links to databases such as MySQL and PostgreSQL are covered. Attention is also paid to NoSQL databases and to the creation and management of S3 Storage Buckets.
AWS also supports serverless computing with AWS Lambda. It is explained that serverless computing does not mean that no servers are used, but that the management of servers is completely taken off your hands by AWS. Next the response to events, automatic scaling and orchestration of functions is treated.
Finally attention is paid to setting up Virtual Networks in the AWS Cloud. This includes AWS Networking with Elastic IP Addresses, Internet Gateways, Security Groups and Network Address Translation.
The course AWS Cloud Development is intended for developers who want to use Amazon Web Services to develop and deploy cloud applications.
Experience with a modern programming language such as C#, Java, Python or PHP is required to participate in this course.
The theory is treated on the basis of presentation slides and demos. During the course theory and exercises are interchanged. The course material is in English. Course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.
After successful completion of the course participants will receive a certificate AWS Cloud Development.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
