Hi and welcome to this course. I’m super excited to be here with you teaching you all about DynamoDB. First off a quick introduction about myself and why you should learn from me and then also I want to quickly cover what you’re going to learn on this course
My name is Ram and I’ve been in the IT industry for more than 15 years. But even more than that, I’m the author of a few different courses in Udemy and all of which are tailored towards beginners. I have a particular interest in covering the basics in a way that people can easily understand and put into action immediately. And hence I believe you have come to the right place.
This course is meant to be the ultimate bootcamp in learning about the basics of DynamoDB in just 3 hours. No advanced topics, no unnecessary drivel, just the solid basics to get you off on the right footing. All I’m asking for is about 3 hours of your time in terms of lecture and probably another 3 or 4 hours in terms of practicing what you’ve learnt. Just imagine, all it will take you is about 1 day or 8 hours to learn about the basics of DynamoDB if you wish to do it this way. Do note that for this speed to work, you should have a basic understanding of databases otherwise your learning curve will be slightly longer
We’ll cover the basics of NoSQL and how it is different from SQL and immediately get into the basics of DynamoDB and the AWS console and we’ll start creating tables in the very first chapter. We’ll then cover more details about the various features of DynamoDB and finally round-up with some of the advanced features of DynamoDB including how it can be used in conjunction with other AWS services to do some extremely powerful database operations.
The recommended way to learn this course though is to take your time between lectures, practice what you learnt in the previous lesson and then move onto the next lecture. This is my preferred method of learning whenever I’m tackling a new subject, but off course each person learns in a different way and I encourage you to follow the method that works best for you.
Who this course is for:
- Database engineers and programmers wanting to learn the basics of NoSQL and DynamoDB
- Basic understanding of databases is required
- No requirement to install any software – everything is online!
