This Nanodegree covers the majority of AWS used by real-world developers, and prepares learners to build cloud-first applications.
In this Nanodegree, you’ll complete four solo portfolio projects and receive a code review and personalized feedback. The projects include deploying a static website to AWS, building an image-processing application with Node and AWS, refactoring a monolithic app to a modern microservices application, and building a serverless version of the image-processing application.
Udacity’s hands-on approach is intense, but it works. Their emphasis on practice and real-world examples will prepare learners for actually building professional-grade cloud-first applications.
Udacity provides Workspaces - in-browser virtual machines - so you can get started quickly without configuring local services. But if you use the Workspaces, we recommend supplementing with some local development as well.
Our course reviews are conducted by a team of technical professionals, course developers, and lifelong learners.
The lead of this project, Brian Green, has worked in developer education since 2009. He built the content development teams at Pluralsight and Udacity, implementing quality standards and tutorials to improve course quality and working with hundreds of authors to create courseware. Most recently, he built the product team at App Academy. As of writing, he estimates he has spent nearly a year of his life taking or reviewing online courses, on topics ranging from Web Development, Networking, Server Administration, DevOps, Cybersecurity, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.
