The AWS Certified Developer Associate certification is one of the most challenging exams. It’s great at assessing how well you understand not just AWS, but the new cloud paradigms such as Serverless, which makes this certification incredibly valuable to have and pass. Rest assured, I’ve passed it myself with a score of 984 out of 1000. Yes, you read that right, I only made one mistake! Next, I want to help YOU pass the AWS Certified Developer Associate certification with flying colors. No need to know anything about AWS, beginners welcome!

This is going to be a long journey, but passing the AWS Certified Developer exam will be worth it!

This course is different from the other ones you’ll find on Udemy. Dare I say, better (but you’ll judge!)

  • It covers in-depth all the new topics on the AWS Certified Developer Associate DVA-C01 exam
  • It’s packed with practical knowledge on how to use AWS inside and out as a developer
  • It teaches you how to prepare for the AWS exam AND how to prepare for the real world
  • It’s a logical progression of topics, not a laundry list of random services
  • It’s fast-paced and to the point
  • It has professional subtitles
  • All 400+ slides available as downloadable PDF

Concretely, here’s what we’ll learn to pass the AWS Certified Developer Associate exam:

  • The AWS Fundamentals: IAM, EC2, Load Balancing, Auto Scaling, EBS, Route 53, RDS, ElastiCache, S3
  • The AWS CLI: CLI setup, usage on EC2, best practices, SDK, advanced usage
  • Properly deploy an application: AWS Elastic Beanstalk, CICD, CodeCommit, CodePipeline, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy
  • Infrastructure as code with AWS CloudFormation
  • Monitoring, Troubleshooting & Audit: AWS CloudWatch, X-Ray, CloudTrail
  • AWS Integration & Messaging: SQS, SNS, Kinesis
  • AWS Serverless: AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, API Gateway, Cognito, Serverless Application Model (SAM)
  • ECS, ECR & Fargate: Docker in AWS
  • AWS Security best practices: KMS, Encryption SDK, SSM Parameter Store, IAM Policies
  • AWS Other Services Overview: CloudFront, Step Functions, SWF, Redshift
  • Tips to ROCK the exam

This course is full of opportunities to apply your knowledge:

  • There are many hands-on lectures in every section
  • There are quizzes at the end of every section
  • There’s an AWS Certified Developer Associate practice exam at the end of the course
  • We’ll be using the AWS Free Tier most of the time
  • I’ll be showing you how to go beyond the AWS Free Tier (you know… the real world!)

Stephane is a solutions architect, consultant and software developer that has a particular interest in all things related to Big Data, Cloud & API. He’s also a many-times best seller instructor on Udemy for his courses in Apache Kafka and AWS.

[See FAQ below to see in which order you can take my courses]

Stéphane is recognized as an AWS Hero and is an AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional & AWS Certified DevOps Professional. He loves to teach people how to use the AWS properly, to get them ready for their AWS certifications, and most importantly for the real world.

He also loves Apache Kafka. He sits on the 2019 Program Committee organizing the Kafka Summit in New York, London and San Francisco. He is also an active member of the Apache Kafka community, authoring blogs on Medium and a guest blog for Confluent.

During his spare time he enjoys cooking, practicing yoga, surfing, watching TV shows, and traveling to awesome destinations!

FAQ: In which order should you learn?…

AWS Cloud: Start with AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate, then move on to AWS Certified Developer Associate and then AWS Certified SysOps Administrator. Afterwards you can either do AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional or AWS Certified DevOps Professional, or a specialty certification of your choosing. Once ready, you can learn AWS Lambda and AWS CloudFormation in depth, or do the AWS Big Data certification.

Apache Kafka: Start with Apache Kafka for Beginners, then you can learn Connect, Streams and Schema Registry if you’re a developer, and Setup and Monitoring courses if you’re an admin. Both tracks are needed to pass the Confluent Kafka certification.

gRPC: First do the protocol buffers course, then move on to gRPC Java or gRPC Golang course.

In order to share knowledge I am not able to respond to private messages on Udemy. If you’re a student, please ask questions inside the course. Thanks for understanding!
