The AWS Public Sector team conducts two workshops on the second Wednesday of each month. The "Introductory Cloud Workshop" is a two hour course involving both one hour of presentations and one hour of demonstrations and tutorials using the AWS platform. The "Technical Cloud Workshop" takes a day and begins with in-depth briefings on AWS services, security in the cloud, migrating applications, and governance and oversight in the AWS environment. It then continues with a three hour hands-on tutorial in which participants use their own AWS accounts to design and deploy a highly-available web application. Both sessions end at the same time, and are followed by a joint reception where AWS Public Sector team members, customers, and partners can network and discuss ways to help each other benefit from the new opportunities created by cloud computing.
Architecting applications in the cloud presents new opportunities and challenges. In this three-day course, Architecting with AWS, you will learn how to design and use AWS services for common IT applications and how to take full advantage of cloud scalability and elasticity. You will learn and discuss established patterns and reference architectures to use in the cloud. This class, with a combination of lecture, discussion, and hands on exercises, will help you understand AWS architecture best practices and gain knowledge you can take back to your teams.
