Hi and welcome to this course. I’m super excited to be here with you teaching you all about Amazon Web Services or AWS as it is shortly called. AWS claims to be the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 fully featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster.The advantage with AWS is that everything is cloud based, no costly hardware to buy, provision or install. First off a quick introduction about myself and why you should learn from me and then also I want to quickly cover what you’re going to learn on this course
My name is Ram and I’ve been in the IT industry for more than 15 years. But even more than that, I’m the author of a few different courses in Udemy and all of which are tailored towards beginners. I have a particular interest in covering the basics in a way that people can easily understand and put into action immediately. And hence I believe you have come to the right place.
This course is meant to be the ultimate bootcamp in learning about the basics of AWS in just about 11 hours. No advanced topics, no unnecessary drivel, just the solid basics to get you off on the right footing. All I’m asking for is about 11 hours of your time in terms of lecture and probably another 11 hours in terms of practicing what you’ve learnt. Just imagine, all it will take you is about 3 days or 22 hours to learn about the basics of AWS if you wish to do it this way. Do note that for this speed to work, you should have a basic understanding of computing services otherwise your learning curve will be slightly longer
We’ll cover all the free services that come with AWS i.e. about 33 services that are free for 12 months and about 22 services that are always free. The advantage with this approach is that you don’t have to spend anything to learn about AWS..
The recommended way to learn this course though is to take your time between lectures, practice what you learnt in the previous lesson and then move onto the next lecture. This is my preferred method of learning whenever I’m tackling a new subject, but off course each person learns in a different way and I encourage you to follow the method that works best for you.
Ok, with that short introduction I’m ready and excited to take you in the exciting world of AWS. Are you ready? Let’s go!
