Look inside

Increase performance and availability of the Cumberland City Council’s traffic issue reporter application. As a cloud engineer assigned to its “Traffic Safety Upliftment” initiative, you’ll migrate this on-premises web app to AWS. To accomplish this, 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. When you’re done, you’ll be able to report traffic issues by submitting data to the backend via the API Gateway to be processed by AWS Lambda and stored in Amazon DynamoDB.

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