AWS Certified Solution Architect Associate exam is intended for individuals with experience designing distributed applications and system on the AWS platform. In preparation for the exam, you will build familiarity with designing and deploying scalable systems in AWS, services that provide an alternative to your on-premises solution, ingress and egress of data with respect to the AWS platform. Moreover, you will develop the ability to select the appropriate service based on data, compute, or security while utilizing AWS best practices for architecture and cost management. We will see you there!

You're watching IT pro TV. >> Hello, ladies and gentlemen, West Brian here, entertainer at IT pro TV. And we are kicking off the AWS certified solutions architect associate and Justin is going to be the subject matter expert. Justin, tell our viewers a little bit about yourself. >> So, Justin Denison here, I do a plethora of things, development, devops whatever that means. People don't really know, I don't really know, but we do it anyway. And then I do a lot of the AWS cloud technologies been teaching and doing technology for I don't know seven plus years. So fun times there. >> All right, so if our viewers are sitting down, I'm gonna be a little selfish here. What's in this for me? What's in this course for our viewers? >> So this course is to get you up to speed enough to start architecting solutions at a very superficial level. The ultimate goal is to validate your understanding by passing the AWS certified solutions architect associate level certification exam, that says I have this baseline knowledge for how to well defined architect solutions in AWS. >> So tell us too a little bit about the course structure. What can they expect? >> So we're gonna be talking about design, security, respective services for compute storage and then applications that will help us make things highly available, fault tolerant, resilient and durable when we're building solutions and those are all prepares to sit for that exam knowing hey, I know what I'm talking about. >> I know you know what you're talking about. Speaking of sitting for that exam because you have, can you tell them a little bit about what to expect on this exam? >> So you're gonna have multi select or multiple or excuse me, multiple choice or multi select answers. They're gonna be fairly short and concise. Do be careful, sometimes there are constraints added as with all exam questions but you don't have to worry about fill in the blank. You don't have to worry about drag and drop, nothing of that nature. And if I'm not mistaken, you have 60 questions and you get a little over two hours to finish the exam, and then you'll know when you walk out, whether you passed or not. >> All right, well I'm excited to be a part of this course and I know our viewers are excited. What about this course excites you? >> So I really like building these highly available solutions like I can pick a load balancer. I can put some compute behind them. And now I have these storage solutions because I used to build applications and infrastructure for scientific applications. This would have made things a lot easier than the on premises. So I gain access to machinery that I didn't normally have access to, so that excites me. >> All right, ladies and gentlemen well, at the AWS certified solutions architect associate is the course for you. Stick around because we got a lot more to come. >> Thank you for watching IT pro TV.
