AWS Modern App Series

A modern application is the combination of modern technologies, architectures, software delivery practices, and operational processes that lead teams to deliver value more quickly, frequently, consistently, and safely. These applications typically take advantage of loosely coupled, distributed technologies and focus on event-driven, serverless components that allow teams to offload undifferentiated heavy lifting in order to spend more time on delivering value for their customers. A modern application also takes advantage of operational and security tooling to increase the reliability and consistency of deployments, while making it safe to deploy many times a day. The use of automation of infrastructure, security, and deployments allows the teams that own modern applications to move more quickly than if they were relying on manual processes or more significant operational management.
