The AWS Certified Developer Associate certification is one of the most challenging exams. It's great at assessing how well you understand not just AWS, but the new cloud paradigms such as Serverless, which makes this certification incredibly valuable to have and pass. Rest assured, I've passed it myself with a score of 984 out of 1000. Yes, you read that right, I only made one mistake.  Next, I want to help YOU pass the AWS Certified Developer Associate certification with flying colors. No need to know anything about AWS, beginners welcome.

This is going to be a long journey, but passing the AWS Certified Developer exam will be worth it.

This course is different from the other ones you'll find on Udemy. Dare I say, better (but you'll judge. )

  • It covers in-depth all the new topics on the AWS Certified Developer Associate DVA-C01 exam

  • It's packed with practical knowledge on how to use AWS inside and out as a developer

  • It teaches you how to prepare for the AWS exam AND how to prepare for the real world

  • It's a logical progression of topics, not a laundry list of random services

  • It's fast-paced and to the point

  • It has professional subtitles

  • All 400+ slides available as downloadable PDF

Concretely, here's what we'll learn to pass the AWS Certified Developer Associate exam:

  • The AWS Fundamentals: .. the real world. )

practice tests in 14 reviews

Thank you stephane for your course & practice tests.

I have done your course and your practice tests.

The content of this course covers everything you need for the certification and you will know most of the services in AWS after you complete the course I bought this course as well as Stephane's 4 practice tests.

The practice tests and their explanation helped a lot to clear some doubts.

Thanks to Stephane, this course and your practice tests really helped me to get hands-on and pass the test within a short time.

The exam question is a little bit tricky so not only understanding the course bust also doing practice tests as much as you can is also important.

Just now completed the exam .This practice tests are not at all aligned with the real exam.Its just a wastage of money.I had purchased both training and pratice test course.None of them are helpful.Very upset.

cloud guru in 10 reviews

At the moment of writing this review (16th March 2019), the course covers the exam-related topics much better than A Cloud Guru course.

I tried Cloud Guru and found their course unfocussed and insufficient.

I doubt you may have great chance to fail if only choose Cloud Guru Great Course&Great Tutor.

Hello, I highly recommend this course any one who new to AWS, AWS developer associate exam, being said, I have been studying "A cloud guru" for a months, thanks for that course, I got basic knowledge of AWS, but in this course, Stephane has covered more topics and much more hands on which required for the exam.

I completed an equivalent course on Cloud Guru first.

As a comparison, I've also completed the A Cloud Guru equivalent training and personally I felt like I was being rushed thorough the content.

I learned more from your course than I did from anyone else's ( A Cloud Guru, CBT Nuggets ), but out of three training courses and a re-certification to only know 8 answers for sure???
