Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery web service which integrates with other Amazon Web Services products to give you an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no minimum usage commitments.

During this course we will cover a range of topics from an introduction to what CloudFront is, to architectural considerations, to pricing and reports. We will then do a walkthrough of creating a Web Distribution, during which we will consider security and best practices. After the creation of the Web Distribution we will start monitoring CloudFront with CloudWatch to ensure that our setup is suitable for our needs and to gather valuable information about our distribution. At the very end of this course we will provide an overview of general best practices.

In order to keep up with this course you should be familiar with the core services that AWS provides and best practices for working with the platform. If you need to get up to speed on this, you can start with the AWS Fundamentals series. This is an intermediate level course, and it is recommended that you also have some basic knowledge about CloudFront prior to start, but we will present a general overview as we get started.
