What you'll learn
- Define Infrastructure as Code using Terraform to easily create and destroy environment
- Design an architecture that is scalable, secure, resilient and facilitates zero downtime deployments
- Setup professional development workflows based on GitLab Flow to automate processes and speed up deployments
- Manage and administer an AWS account in accordance with best practices to mitigate the risk of it getting compromised
- Prior experience using Django and Docker
- Familiar with AWS
- A macOS or Windows 10 Professional machine that supports Docker Desktop (Linux should work but we cannot offer support due to various distributions)
- Some budget and a payment method accepted by AWS

Welcome to the advanced course on how to set up a deployment automation that’s capable of handling millions of users!
In this course you will learn some of the most in-demand skills in the marketplace today by creating automated workflows to deploy and manage a scalable and secure infrastructure.
The demand for DevOps engineers is skyrocketing because few people have these skills and the value they add to a business’s bottom line is so high. Software development is expensive, and DevOps saves money by automating and streamlining the process. It also makes it easier to deploy more frequently, so you can catch issues early and improve the reliability of your product or service. Not to mention it saves hundreds of hours of manually administering servers and running deployments (like the good old days).
People in DevOps roles are some of the highest earners in the industry, are looking for work the least, and are the most sought after by companies. (Source: Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019 and Indeed).
Needless to say, mastering the technologies and skills used for DevOps is a great return on investment.
Whether you’re a developer, system administrator, or tech entrepreneur - this course will give you the tools to advance your skills in some of the most in-demand DevOps technologies in the marketplace today.
In this course, you’ll be deploying a sample Django REST API to AWS using Terraform, GitLab, Docker and a suite of AWS technologies, including:
Elastic Container Registry (ECR)
Relational Database Service (RDS)
Elastic Container Service (ECS)
Application Load Balancer (ALB)
Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2)
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
Simple Storage Service (S3)
Identity and Access Management (IAM)
and AWS Certificate Manager (ACM)
This course was designed to deploy a Django application, but it will work for any web application that runs in Docker.
In this course, you will learn how to:
Define your infrastructure as code so you can easily create and destroy environments as you need them, keeping AWS costs low
Design an architecture that is scalable, secure, resilient and facilitates zero downtime deployments
Setup professional development workflows based on GitLab Flow to automate processes and speed up deployments
Properly manage and administer an AWS account in accordance with best practices to mitigate the risk of it getting compromised (and preventing AWS bill shock)
By the end of the course you will have implemented a fully functioning deployment process, comparable to what you might find at any major tech company.
This is an advanced course that requires previous experience with Django and Docker, and familiarity with AWS. It requires you to have a budget for AWS fees and an acceptable payment method. You must also have a computer that can run Docker desktop (sorry Windows Home users).
This is a high-stakes course, so we encourage you to check out our full Requirements video before enrolling. This video and many others are free to preview, so make sure you check them out to make sure this course is right for you.
This is a hands-on course, with a bit of theory and lots of opportunities to test your knowledge. The content is challenging but rewarding. Ready for it? Let’s dive in!
Who this course is for:
- Developers/System administrators looking to expand their knowledge into DevOps
- Intermediate to advanced developers (or really keen beginners who don't mind jumping in the deep end to learn something exciting)
- Junior DevOps developers looking to advance their skills
Hey, I’m Mark! I’m an award-winning full-stack software engineer with a passion for learning and teaching new technologies.
This passion started at 12-years-old when I taught myself how to make Windows batch scripts. Little did I know that hacking around on my computer back then would turn into a life-long passion for programming.
I went on to complete a degree in Computer Systems Networking at Nottingham Trent University, and worked in various developer roles at multinational corporations and startups.
I always believed that the final step to learning is teaching. And so I started a software development blog and consultancy firm called London App Developer. My work has been featured in the Daily Mail, Mashable, TechCrunch, the Huffington Post, the Mirror and Gizmodo, and over 30,000 developers read my programming tutorials every month.
My goal for teaching on Udemy is to help developers make a better living through their code. Whether that’s by building new systems and tools to make the world a better place, or just to make their lives easier. If I can help them to increase their earning power, so they can better support their communities and loved ones, then even better. :)
I live in London, England with my wife and business partner, Brooke.
Hi! I'm Brooke. I'm a digital marketing professional with an expertise in social media, branding and content strategy. I'm also one half of a London-based software consultancy firm (and blog) called London App Developer. We make training guides and courses for the developer community. :)
After earning a MA in Communication from the University of Ottawa, I moved to London, England to start a career in journalism, PR and social media. After a short time in this city, I moved into education and technology, and the two have been a passion of mine ever since.
I've worked for struggling start-ups and billion-dollar companies. My experience has been diverse. But each role and project has given me a unique perspective on how to connect and develop long-term, meaningful relationships with customers to drive sales and growth for brands and business.
Though not a developer by trade - I am in business/married to one! My role on Udemy right now is to help support the delivery of our first course called BUILD YOUR BACKEND USING PYTHON & DJANGO REST FRAMEWORK. We hope you enjoy it.
