Amazon announced that a new, improved training course is now available for Amazon Web Services developers.

New to the Developing on AWS course are: additional programming language support, a balance of concepts and code, AWS SDK labs, relevant to more developers, and expanded coverage of developer-oriented AWS services.

"Whether you’re moving applications to AWS or developing specifically for the cloud, this course can show you how to use the AWS SDK to create secure, scalable cloud applications that tap the full power of the platform," says Amazon's Jeff Barr.

As far as the new programming language support, the practice labs now support Java, .Net, Python, JavaScript (for Node.js and browser) as well as Windows and Linux.

Barr notes that the additional support makes the course more useful to startup and enterprise developers alike.

"The updated course expands coverage of key concepts, best practices, and troubleshooting tips for AWS services to help students build a mental model before diving into code," says Barr. "Students then use an AWS SDK to develop apps that apply these concepts in hands-on labs. Practice labs are designed to emphasize the AWS SDK, reflecting how developers actually work and create solutions. Lab environments now include EC2 instances preloaded with all required programming language SDKs, developer tools, and IDEs."

The course also now puts more focus on AWS services like Amazon DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, Amazon Cognito, Amazon Kinesis Streams, Amazon ElastiCache, AWS CloudFormation, etc.

To enroll, you can look over the syllabus, and find a class.
