Today Udacity’s AWS Cloud Architect Nanodegree Program launched!
This is outside my usual wheelhouse of autonomous vehicles and robotics, but I played a significant (albeit behind-the-scenes) role teaching the first course in the three-course program.
Tom Verbiscer and I worked together to design and build a sequence of lessons on high-availability, resilience, and redundancy. Tom teaches about:
- Availability Zones
- Server-based architecture
- Serverless architecture
- Global services
- DynamoDB and global tables
- S3 classes and features
- Service-Level Agreements
- Recovery Time Objectives
- Recovery Point Objectives
- Disaster Recovery
- Monitoring with CloudWatch
- Alerting with Simple Notification Service
- Chaos Engineering!
And that’s just the first course of the program!
I hope everyone that enrolls learns as much from taking the program as I did working with Tom to build the program.
