About this Event

Principles X -  AWS Cloud Computing 2

Prerequisites: Principles X - AWS Cloud Computing 1

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the computing arm of Amazon Inc. and is the larger provider of Cloud Computing Services in the world today. AWS allows individuals to rent computing, networking and storage resources over the internet and provides the tools to enable developers to create applications hosted off these resources. Combining all skills previously learnt at SG Code Campus with cloud computing will allow students to release their app creations to the world at scale!

Ever used Google Docs to write a report, Apple iCloud to store your favorite photos or created that smashing new playlist on Spotify? If the answer is yes, then you have unwittingly consumed services from the mysterious Cloud.

Put simply, Cloud Computing refers to using other people's computers and servers to run your computing needs, usually over the internet. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world's largest Cloud provider, operating hundreds of thousands of computers at data centre locations all over the world. AWS provides developers with the computing, networking and storage infrastructure they need to build and deploy that shiny new mobile/web app or run technology companies - learn how tech giants like Grab and Netflix leverage on AWS to build their success.

In this course we will learn about the concepts of cloud computing and how it's often the answer to many computing needs compared to the traditional compute hardware.

One will also be able to appreciate the high level abstraction that cloud computing provides, being able to scale infinitely/immediately and also professionally secured infrastructure that otherwise will be too difficult and expensive for traditional computing paradigms to even keep up.

Students will be able to explore AWS S3 service to store terabytes of files, images, and generic files; as well as hosting static websites.

  • Appreciate how persistent data unlocks a healthy set of capabilities – making your application feeling more real. No more data that quickly disappears, dinky example apps – unlocking features like user accounts, blog posts, friend requests, calendar appointments – all with the power of data persistence.
  • Efficiently structure data in flexible and persistent data frameworks that allows for easy querying and also prevent running into issues when you have millions of data points.
  • Explore AWS DynamoDB as AWS's homegrown solution to persistent data and how to integrate DynamoDB in your application.
  • Understand the fundamental concept of DynamoDB being the cloud-based database and how that in turn requires a separate set of requirements in setting up local development environment and deployment to the cloud.
  • Hands-on development in integrating DynamoDB in their existing Express-based server applications via AWS SDK (Software Development Kit) which will serve as their first soft-drop into the world of SDKs – arguably one of the most crucial skills to have as a modern developer to integrate multiple pieces of technologies and libraries into their application.
  • Learn fine-grained access management for applications deployed onto the AWS cloud to access separate AWS entities via AWS IAM roles, groups and policies.
  • Last lesson of this course involves the AWS Technicals camp – a full day camp at AWS. Completion of the AWS Technicals camp will be awarded with a certificate jointly awarded by AWS and SG Code Campus.

This is an 8-lesson course – last 3 lessons is a full day AWS Technicals camp at AWS. The first 5 lessons will be conducted on Saturdays via Zoom, from 16 Jan - 20 Feb 2021. The AWS Technicals camp will be conducted on 27 Feb. No lesson on 13 Feb 2021.

As Singapore's only home-grown authorised Training Partner in the AWS Partner Network, we are proud to offer the first youth coding programme in ASEAN that leads to official Amazon Training, Certification and Credentials.

Completion of this programme leads to a Certificate of Completion issued by AWS and will prepare students to sit for the AWS-proctored exam which confers the AWS Cloud Practitioner credentials (#8 of the Forbes 2020 list of the top IT certifications in the world); exam fee to be paid separately.
