AWS bootcamps are an opportunity to dive deep into existing skills and learn new ways of working with AWS. Bootcamps are full and half day training sessions delivered by experienced AWS Instructors and Solution Architects. In addition to technical and non-technical topics, we’re offering AWS Certification Exam Readiness Bootcamps, which help you prepare for an AWS Certification exam. These bootcamps will go over the structure of an exam and help you interpret the concepts being tested so you can better eliminate incorrect exam responses.

Note: All students must bring their own laptop (Windows/OSX/Linux all supported)—tablets are not appropriate. We also recommend having the current version of Chrome or Firefox installed.

All bootcamps are being offered on Wednesday, August 1 at McCormick Center West. While registration to attend the AWS Summit on August 2 is free, there is a cost to register to attend an AWS bootcamp on August 1. See below for pricing.
