Media company Nextstellar Corp has completed the migration of their data to the cloud—now they need to analyze it! That’s where you come in. You’ll take on the challenge of processing and integrating file and transactional data into a new cloud database solution that uses modern data architecture. You’ll use the AWS Glue tool to automate the whole process, from creating your crawlers and database to building your repository, Glue jobs, triggers, and establishing monitoring, troubleshooting, and scaling.

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