Welcome! I’m here to help you prepare and PASS the newest AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam.

———————————–

Beginners welcome: no need to know anything about AWS!

The AWS Certified Solutions Architect certification is one of the most challenging exams. It’s great at assessing how well you understand not just AWS, but making sure you are making the best architectural decisions based on situations, which makes this certification incredibly valuable to have and pass. Rest assured, I’ve passed it myself with the score of 982 out of 1000. Yes you read that right, I only made one mistake! Next, I want to help YOU pass the AWS Solutions Architect certification with flying colors.

This is going to be a long journey, but passing the AWS Certified Solutions Architect 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!)

  • We will spend over three hours discussing solution architecture on AWS in depth. 

  • It covers in depth all the new topics on the AWS Certified Solutions Architect SAA-C01 exam

  • It’s packed with practical knowledge on how to use AWS inside and out as a solutions architect

  • 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 500+ slides available as downloadable PDF

Concretely, here’s what we’ll learn to pass the exam:

  • The AWS Fundamentals: IAM, EC2, Load Balancing, Auto Scaling, EBS, EFS, Route 53, RDS, ElastiCache, S3, CloudFront

  • The AWS CLI: CLI setup, usage on EC2, best practices, SDK, advanced usage

  • In Depth Database comparison: RDS, Aurora, DynamoDB, Neptune, ElastiCache, Redshift, ElasticSearch, Athena

  • Monitoring, Troubleshooting & Audit: AWS CloudWatch, CloudTrail

  • AWS Integration & Messaging: SQS, SNS, Kinesis

  • AWS Serverless: AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, API Gateway, Cognito

  • AWS Security best practices: KMS, SSM Parameter Store, IAM Policies

  • VPC & Networking in depth

  • AWS Other Services Overview: CICD (CodeCommit, CodeBuild, CodePipeline, CodeDeploy), CloudFormation, ECS, Step Functions, SWF, EMR, Glue, OpsWorks, ElasticTranscoder, AWS Organizations, Workspaces, AppSync, Single Sign On (SSO)

  • 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 a 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… real world!)
