Working with DynamoDB journey is designed to help participants gain a deep understanding of Amazon's NoSQL database service. During this journey, participants will learn how to create and manage DynamoDB tables, perform basic CRUD operations, and work with advanced topics such as indexing, transactions, and security. They will also see DynamoDB in action through real-world use cases and learn how to integrate it with other AWS services. By the end of the journey, participants will have a solid understanding of best practices for using DynamoDB to optimize performance, manage cost, and ensure high availability and durability. Whether you're a developer, administrator, or architect, this journey will provide the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to effectively work with DynamoDB.
In this track of the Working with DynamoDB Aspire journey, the focus will be on how to create and manage DynamoDB tables, perform basic CRUD operations, and work with advanced topics such as indexing, transactions, and security.
Cloud databases are hosted on and often maintained by a cloud platform. The platform manages the hardware, networks, and OS, and users pay for the allocated or consumed resources. Through this course, learn what cloud-hosted databases have to offer, the factors that influence the adoption of a cloud database, and what to watch out for when using such systems. Explore the characteristics of cloud-hosted databases and the benefits and caveats of such services. Next, discover factors to consider when moving to the cloud. Finally, compare SQL and NoSQL systems and learn about some of the most powerful cloud-hosted database services. Upon completion, you'll be able to recognize the elements of different cloud databases and select the best option.
Data has expanded in every domain, and being able to store and query this data efficiently is what separates great organizations from their competitors. The category of NoSQL databases has gained popularity, due in part to their simple and easy-to-understand forms. Through this course, learn how to get started with Amazon DynamoDB. Explore NoSQL, key-value, and document databases and the features of Amazon DynamoDB. Next, learn best practices for using DynamoDB and how to create a DynamoDB table and populate it with data. Finally, discover ways to interact with the data in a DynamoDB table and how to install and use the AWS CLI. Upon completion, you'll be able to perform basic operations with Amazon DynamoDB.
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.
Developers can best use DynamoDB in their own organization when they're knowledgeable about advanced DynamoDB operations. This includes executing precise queries, deeper knowledge about indexes, streaming item modifications, and transaction definitions and execution. Through this course, learn how to perform advanced operations in DynamoDB. Discover how to run various queries against a dataset containing different attribute types and ensure that only specific attributes in your table's items are returned. Next, examine how global secondary indexes are specified with the AWS CLI and the different projection types supported. Finally, learn how to implement streams using Amazon Kinesis and DynamoDB Streams and how transactions can be defined and executed in DynamoDB. Upon completion, you'll be able to execute advanced DynamoDB operations.
Developers should not only be familiar with DynamoDB's significant features like local and global indexes, but they should also know precisely how to apply them. This allows developers to set up and make optimum use of DynamoDB within any organization and build scalable and responsive applications around this NoSQL database. Through this course, learn how to get the best out of DynamoDB. Discover how to install Flask, set it up to store user details in a DynamoDB table, and implement features to link up with DynamoDB. Next, learn how to store images for DynamoDB items in S3 buckets. Finally, practice implementing global data replication and item auto-expiration. After course completion, you'll be able to use DynamoDB optimally.
