Course Outline:

AWS Jam is a gamified event with teams competing to win by completing a series of hands-on challenges on the AWS platform over the course of a day. Participants develop, enhance, and validate team skill sets in the AWS Cloud through real-world problem-solving. Each AWS Jam takes place in a pre-created AWS infrastructure that is based on common use cases that participants use to determine what happened, how to best respond, and how to deploy appropriate solutions. While each challenge has a set of goals, the path to the solution is open-ended, allowing teams the freedom to play and learn by exploring different approaches and combinations of AWS services.

Participants will experience a wide range of AWS services in a series of real-world scenarios that represent common operational and troubleshooting tasks. A live leaderboard provides updates on team stats and progress. Teams earn the most points by solving challenges before the other teams. If they get stuck, they can use clues, but each clue will reduce their score.
