Here is our in-depth review of Ultimate AWS Certified Developer Associate 2023 NEW DVA-C02, based on hours of rigorous testing and evaluation.
Updated: August 29, 2023
A top-tier video course that teaches AWS development essentials and preparation for the AWS Certified Developer - Associate (DVA-C02) certification exam.
By Stephane Maarek
The course includes extensive video content that covers all key domains of the AWS Certified Developer - Associate exam. You'll learn about AWS services, serverless computing, deployment, monitoring, and more. The video content is well-structured and includes practical examples, ensuring that you grasp the concepts thoroughly.
One of the standout features of this course is the expert instructor, Stephane Maarek, who is widely recognized in the AWS certification training space. His clear and detailed explanations provide a strong foundation in AWS development concepts, making complex topics understandable.
Real world demonstrations are a crucial part of this course, allowing you to see the technologies working in a practical setting. You can follow along with the demonstrations using the AWS free tier to see the technologies working in a live environment. As you follow along with the demos, you'll gain hands-on experience in developing AWS applications, touching 30 AWS services, including EC2, S3, RDS, DynamoDB, IAM, and Lambda.
Unlike some of the other courses in this guide, the course doesn’t provide direct hands-on practice exercises. You can code along with the demonstrations, but it’s important to get practice without instructor guidance in order to be able to apply skills professionally. So if you decide to take this course, we recommend supplementing it with hands-on practice. Consider simulating a real world environment with a scenario, where you define some business requirements and then build an application for the company using the AWS you’ve learned in this course.
The course's coverage of the certification exam may not be applicable for aspiring full stack engineers. Feel free to skip those sections if you're not convinced you need the certification.
