About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Labs in this specialization follow a storyline where you are tasked with building out a website hosted on AWS using all serverless services. Each lab will walk you through building out the website and backend API step by step. The labs focus on the use of the AWS SDK and AWS CLI. You will start by creating the front-end website, then the backend API, add authentication to that API, create the backend compute functions, create an asynchronous reporting workflow, and then implement distributed tracing, use monitoring features, and improving performance for the distributed application.
You will also learn how to develop with Amazon DynamoDB by using the AWS Software Development Kit (AWS SDK) via multiple exercises.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
