Developing Generative AI Applications on AWS (DGAIA)

 

Course Overview

This course is designed to introduce generative artificial intelligence (AI) to software developers interested in using large language models (LLMs) without fine-tuning. The course provides an overview of generative AI, planning a generative AI project, getting started with Amazon Bedrock, the foundations of prompt engineering, and the architecture patterns to build generative AI applications using Amazon Bedrock and LangChain.

Who should attend

This course is intended for:

  • Software developers interested in using LLMs without fine-tuning

Prerequisites

We recommend that attendees of this course have:

  • Define the importance of generative AI and explain its potential risks and benefits
  • Identify business value from generative AI use cases
  • Discuss the technical foundations and key terminology for generative AI
  • Explain the steps for planning a generative AI project
  • Identify some of the risks and mitigations when using generative AI
  • Understand how Amazon Bedrock works
  • Familiarize yourself with basic concepts of Amazon Bedrock
  • Recognize the benefits of Amazon Bedrock
  • List typical use cases for Amazon Bedrock
  • Describe the typical architecture associated with an Amazon Bedrock solution
  • Understand the cost structure of Amazon Bedrock
  • Implement a demonstration of Amazon Bedrock in the AWS Management Console
  • Define prompt engineering and apply general best practices when interacting with foundation models (FMs)
  • Identify the basic types of prompt techniques, including zero-shot and few-shot learning
  • Apply advanced prompt techniques when necessary for your use case
  • Identify which prompt techniques are best suited for specific models
