Look inside

Play the role of cloud engineer working for the Cumberland City Council. As part of a “Traffic Safety Upliftment” initiative to improve website performance and availability, you’ll migrate the on-premises serverless internet-facing app to Amazon Web Services (AWS). You’ll set up the project prerequisites, register the domain, redirect DNS, configure the Amazon S3 Bucket, perform logging and monitoring, and test the serverless website. To deploy, you’ll use AWS CloudFront. When you’re done, you’ll have a viewable dashboard that retrieves data from the backend Amazon DynamoDB table and displays statistics to the user.

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