This module starts with how to develop applications in a team. An application engineer doesn’t work alone, and you learn how an engineer interacts with roles such as architects, product managers, quality assurance (QA), support, and DevOps teams. Next, you learn the basics of Python programming. The goal is to get you to the level where you can read and understand some basic Python code. If you already know a programming language, many of the features of Python will look similar to the programming languages you already know.

This module focuses on software architecture. You learn about AWS Lambda as a home for your application code. You also investigate three different types of application architecture: microservices architecture, monolithic architecture, and service-oriented architecture. You walk through a conceptual ecommerce application, and compare how to build an application based on each architecture type. Next, you learn how to expose your application logic as an application programming interface (API). In a lab environment, you deploy a Lambda function and an Amazon API Gateway API by using the AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM).
