In this section of the Cloud Practitioner course, we introduce the concepts of decoupled and event-driven architectures and introduce various serverless services in AWS that are relevant to the CLF-C01 exam.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify examples of decoupled and event-driven architectures
  • Understand how AWS services such as SQS and SNS can integrate with decoupled and event-driven architectures
  • Describe the various serverless services in AWS and their associated use cases


This lesson is designed for anyone who is new to cloud computing, so no prior experience with AWS is necessary. While it may be helpful to have a basic understanding of AWS and its services, as well as some exposure to AWS Cloud design, implementation, and operations, this is not required as all of the concepts we will introduce in this lesson will be explained and reinforced from the ground up.
