Look inside

Help the Cumberland City Council earn—and keep!—the trust of the residents it serves. As a cloud engineer working on its “Traffic Safety Upliftment” initiative to improve performance and availability, you’ll secure the AWS services (S3, DynamoDB, Lambda, CloudFront, and API Gateway) associated with its static website and serverless web apps on the AWS cloud.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
