It is generally quite hard to understand the basic technical expertise in provisioning, operating, and managing distributed application systems on the AWS platform -not with this course though. It gave me hands-on knowledge on how to automate security controls of the platform and other functions

This course was great. The lectures and quizzes gave me a chance to learn and I was glad I was given to do with whatever I found out in the finished scheme. All the lectures were highly absorbing. The quiz on Security, Governance, and Validation was a highlight of the course.
