In modern cloud native application development, it’s oftentimes the goal to build out serverless architectures that are scalable, are highly available, and are fully managed. This means less operational overhead for you and your business, and more focusing on the applications and business specific projects that differentiate you in your marketplace. In this course, we will be covering how to build a modern, greenfield serverless backend on AWS. Building brand new applications on AWS is a different task than lifting and shifting existing applications into AWS. When you have an existing application that you need to move to AWS, you might first look to using Amazon EC2 as your virtual machines, or maybe you might look into using docker containers and container hosting services like Amazon Elastic Container Service or Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service. Those are all great application hosting options, but in most cases, they still require you to have some kind of pulse on the underlying infrastructure hosting your application. ` Building Modern Python Applications on AWS will explore how to build an API driven application using Amazon API Gateway for serverless API hosting, AWS Lambda for serverless computing, and Amazon Cognito for serverless authentication. We will follow an API driven development process and first mock up what the API will look like. We will cover all the ins and outs of the service Amazon API Gateway, and as you’ll learn- it does a lot more than just hosting an API. Then we will add authentication to the API using Amazon Cognito. You’ll learn about how the authorization flow works with Cognito, and how to build it into your APIs. From there, we will add a Lambda backend that will be triggered by API Gateway. The lambda functions will be using the AWS SDKs to perform various data processing tasks. You’ll learn about the different configurations that exist for Lambda, and we will show you how to create and manage lambda functions. Some of the features of our API will require multiple lambda functions to execute in a specific order, like a workflow, and we will use AWS Step Functions to create a serverless workflow. Finally, we will talk about how to optimize your APIs at every layer using AWS features. Note: There are four versions of this class, "Building Modern Node.js Applications on AWS" for Node.js developers, Building Modern Java Applications on AWS" for Java developers, "Building Modern .NET Applications on AWS" for .NET developers, and this course, "Building Modern Python Applications on AWS" for Python developers. The courses do for a large part, overlap and in general, we recommend that you take the course that focuses on the SDK you plan to use to develop your AWS Cloud based applications. We expect that you have basic knowledge of AWS already. Some examples of concepts you should be familiar with are: you should know the basics of the AWS Global infrastructure, like what regions and availability zones are. You also should know the at a high-level AWS Identity and Access Management, or IAM, and how it is used to control access to AWS resources. You should also understand what an Amazon EC2 instance is, what Amazon S3 is, what a VPC is, as well as other basic AWS terminology....

Excellent course to understand how to use these essential elements of AWS to make small apps. I learned a lot about microservices architecture and good practices using AWS resources.

It is great training. I experienced a lot of AWS services and how they work together to deliver services. Expecting more alike courses from AWS and other providers.

I wasn't particularly impressed with this course. I was looking for "developing modern python applications" with some AWS around, but this course was much rather about AWS with very little python development involved.

The instructors were also so-so.. I liked some of them, but we had a bad apple though. I understand this is a very sensitive topic, but let's just say if a high percentage of the students are VERY annoyed by one's style, so can barely watch videos, you're maybe better off on either working on improving your style or finding something else to do..

I'll keep looking for a course giving me more knowledge on modern python development, covering topics like modern Python style, organizing code into packages, etc. :)

I'll begin with the Pros of this course :

1. Morgan Willis & Seph Robinson are doing a good job & are good instructors. Clear, precise & to the point.

2. The hands-on workshops are good & provide you with good hands-on experience.

Now for the Cons :

1. I find it quite difficult to listen to instructor Jonathan Dion because of his

very exaggerated mimics, voice tone, hands movement & accent. It feels more like an acting class rather than a Python\AWS course.

2.I'm currently in Week 3 of the course but I have to say that there's hardly any python here. It mainly focuses on the serverless AWS services ( which is good ) but the 'python' part is scarce.

3. The QUIZ in each week\section has questions that were NOT taught anywhere in the course.

Now regarding Coursera itself :

1. Unlike most other Online Course providers Coursera charges you Per month. Not per course.

So it's like a subscription. You would have assumed that it's a monthly fee for any course you wish to take but it's only for the course you're taking ! you want to take another course ? Pay additional fee....each month.... I personally think that's outrageous.

2. To top that the good folks from Coursera do not provide an invoice when they charge. Only a receipt. Why ? that's their policy.....

I hope Coursera will indeed PUBLISH my review. I think they need this kind of feedback.....

Course isn't what I was expecting based on the course title and summary. Curriculum needs to be reviewed from a pedagogic perspective and content feels too much like a classrom "Hello World" without much real world best practice. Not suitable for intermediate AWS users and experienced Python developers looking for best practices for building/deploying Python apps to AWS.

Lab exercises are too much of a 'follow instructions, don't think to much, run the script which will do everything for you". Jonathan Dion is probably the worst lecturer I have ever listened to. Explaining everything with overemphasized gesticulation, not being authentic at all.

I could not complete half of the labs as there was a problem with the links to start them, it kept giving me an error. No one responded to mine and other classmate's forum discussions and not even Coursera support could help me with it. They kept saying to go to the forums for help and did not acknowledge me when I told them I wasn't getting responses and not even other classmates questions were acknowledge after waiting a month I gave up reaching out. I tried in a few different forum topics but no use with no mods watching these. Felt like I did not receive the full learning experience and practice that I needed.

A well-done introduction to lambda functions (micro services) usage in the AWS environment. Of course, one needs to spend more time to read the course notes in order to have a grasp of the subject, but the teachers team is doing an excellent job !

Nevertheless, the videos might be a bit outdated, as for some of them I couldn’t find the same look on the current AWS Cloud9 IDE site as shown in the videos, yet with a bit of search one can find the way to do it.

Good job, Keep it going !

I learn lot of things in this course and the instructors are very amenable and knowledgeable. This course contains a lot of information to be able to develop application in AWS. However, it has so much info about AWS that it cannot go very deep into the development of the actual code. I would've like to have a section on developing for AWS SDK. The labs give you the code already done and you can look at it and figure out what it does by yourself.

Excelente curso, super completo!! Se presenta un proyecto para implementar end to end muy util.

Las explicaciones estan muy bien llevadas y hay muchos ejemplos dados por los instructores que son utiles para la vida real. Es recomendable como dicen en la introduccion, tener algun conocimiento previo de AWS

Thank you very much for this useful, important and interesting course. All tutors tried to encourage me to study all aspects of AWS content. In total, this course was well-organized and will help me to be more experienced with AWS deliverables.

It's perfect. You end up working with the serverless AWS services using the knowlegde learned in the course.

A fantastic overview of the 'serverless', 'event-driven' design being used in cloud-native architecture.
