Want to ramp up your knowledge of AWS big data web services and launch your first big data application on the cloud? We walk you through simplifying big data processing as a data bus comprising ingest, store, process, and visualize. You build a big data application using AWS managed services, including Amazon Athena, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon S3. Along the way, we review architecture design patterns for big data applications and give you access to a take-home lab so that you can rebuild and customize the application yourself. You should bring your own laptop and have some familiarity with AWS services to get the most from this session.
