“What an amazing journey AWS Dev Hour has been. I hope that you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have,” said co-host Ben Newton. “Thanks for hanging out with us! We really appreciate every single one of you for your commitment and contributions to the show. Stay curious and stay AWSome!”

What is AWS Dev Hour: Building Modern Applications?

Built by developers, for developers, the series offers an interactive, fun, and hands-on approach that gives you the chance to learn by doing. Over the course of eight weekly episodes, AWS expert hosts Ben Newton and May Kyaw, both based in Australia, will take you through the end-to-end build of a serverless application in the AWS Cloud using the AWS Free Tier. You’ll start building a modern, full-stack, cloud-native application in the AWS Cloud, and in each episode, you’ll get to code in real time alongside your hosts, leveraging AWS Lambda, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon API Gateway, the React library, authentication, Amazon S3, Amazon SQS, AWS CodePipeline, and more. Along the way, you’ll learn best practices for modern applications and better understand how AWS-Cloud-native applications differ from on premises. The new AWS Dev Hour: Building Modern Applications series is part of AWS’s commitment to provide free skills training to 29 million learners globally by 2025 through innovative offerings that meet learners where they are.
