Lab Recap
  • You have a valid debit or credit card to create a AWS Account (or you already have an AWS Account)
  • This is a total beginners course about AWS, some web-development knowledge is advised though
  • You DO NOT need to have any experience with AWS (Amazon Web Services), or ECS, or ECR, or and Cloud Services at all
  • The course teaches you Docker as a crash-course, so you can follow along even if you have never heard of Docker before

This course is for total AWS beginners who want to confidently put AWS DevOps on their CV. The course is JAM PACKED with awesome, hands-on and practical real-world labs.

Check it out... The Complete 2020 AWS ECS DevOps Masterclass For Total Beginners

You are learning over a dozen AWS Services hands-on and in-depth. You can apply it to the final project and in real life.

In the final project you are dockerizing Laravel and then deploying a containerized Laravel PHP Application with a user registration/login to an ECS cluster with a full CI/CD Pipeline via CodeCommit, CodeBuild and CodePipeline.

Wondering how all of this is possible in only 10 hours? Read on!

But ... Why Learn AWS DevOps in the first place?

Well, because it's awesome and pays great money.

Quick question: How much do you earn in your current job? Is it $100.000 per year or more? If you currently earn less than $100.000 per year, then learning AWS skills can really pay off.

While it's hard to get concrete numbers on jobs with AWS skills, according to edureka, AWS entry level jobs are hovering $100.000 per year. If you bring some experience with you then it's $140.000 per year, or $72 per hour.

But first you need to learn AWS, right?

You might ask: Is this really the right course for you?

Unlike so many YouTube tutorials, I'm not skipping anything and nothing is outdated.

Don't take my word for it...

This is what actual students said:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I can recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more about AWS and DevOps, especially if you are a beginner..."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "... Content is laid out well and the speaker is clear."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "... the teacher promptly updated the resources, excellent support!"

The course doesn't cut any corners! Check out these skills you will acquire along the way:

  • Learn about AWS IAM, the Identity and Access Management of AWS

  • Elasticity and Scalability of the cloud: How to provision and auto-scale AWS EC2 Instances using Auto Scaling Groups (ASG) and Elastic Load Balancers (AWS ELB)

  • Storage: How to work with S3 and the Elastic File System (AWS EFS) to store static websites and share and persistently store files for your web-projects.

  • Networking: How to build your own Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) with Public and Private Subnets and NAT Gateways, Route Tables, Internet Gateways, etc.

  • Code Collaboration: How to work with Git and AWS CodeCommit to collaborate in Teams

  • Containerization: How to Containerize applications, work with docker-compose and how to upload Docker images to the Elastic Container Registry (AWS ECR)

  • Cluster: Learn how to run Fargate and EC2 ECS Clusters and scale out and scale in your app.

  • CI/CD: Learn how to continuously deploy your application from your computer via Git using CodeCommit to the cluster using AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodePipeline.

  • Databases and Caching: Learn how to provision hosted MySQL Instances using AWS RDS and hosted Redis Caches using AWS ElastiCache

  • and many more things like Route53, AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store, AWS Certificate Manager, ...

This course covers everything you would encounter as a Web-Application Developer in practice to deploy highly available and fault tolerant Web-Applications using Docker Containers from the Developers Machine into Production at Scale. Even if you have Zero AWS experience.

This course will take you from AWS beginner to AWS master. Here’s why:

  • This course is taught by someone with over 15 years of hands-on experience of deployment at scale scenarios.

  • This course been recorded in 2020, so it's not just 2020 Ready, it is brand new! You’ll be learning with all the latest tools.

  • This course does not cut any corners, you will learn by building Real-World Projects in our labs.

  • I taught over 70,000 Students here on Udemy and in-person.

  • Save Yourself Over $10K you would normally pay for an AWS live bootcamp, but still get access to the same materials as live bootcamps.
