Amazon DynamoDB is a fully-managed NoSQL database on the AWS cloud. It has many valuable features, including on-demand backup and restore, point-in-time recovery, item expiration setting, local and global secondary indexes, and stream event generation for data modification. Through this course, learn how to interact with DynamoDB. Discover how to set up and work with a local development version of DynamoDB. Next, learn how to execute various database operations, including adding data to a table and then updating it. Finally, learn how to use the Boto3 library for Python and use global secondary indexes to enable different types of queries on DynamoDB data. After course completion, you'll be able to perform operations on a DynamoDB instance.
