Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the leading cloud computing provider. It's used by hundreds of thousands of businesses all over the world, therefore having a basic understanding of its services can be a major career boost.
This course will teach you AWS from the ground up and provide a thorough overview of all its key services. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of what AWS is, what its many services are all about (and what each service does) and which kind of service (or service combination) may be used to meet IT or application requirements.
This course provides all the knowledge needed to pass the CLF-C01 Cloud Practitioner certification exam!
You also get full access to a complete, realistic practice exam that helps you test your knowledge and prepare for the real exam.
But the course even goes beyond the bare minimum of knowledge required for that exam. It's therefore the perfect starting point for your journey into the AWS cloud and also acts as a great refresher for people who've been away from AWS for some time and want to get a thorough overview of all key services again.
After taking this course, besides passing the Cloud Practitioner exam, you can use the gained knowledge to dive deeper into AWS and learn about concrete implementation examples for specific problems.
For following along, you can create an AWS account but you don't have to - for passing the Cloud Practitioner exam and getting an overview of all key services, no practical (hands-on) experience with AWS is required.

Experience as (Web) Developer
Starting out at the age of 12 I never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. Early I started creating websites for friends and just for fun as well. Besides web development I also explored Python and other non-web-only languages. This passion has since lasted and lead to my decision of working as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun I have in this job is immense and really keeps that passion burningly alive.
Starting web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel, NodeJS, Python) I also became more and more of a frontend developer using modern frameworks like React, Angular or VueJS in a lot of projects. I love both worlds nowadays!
I also build full-stack applications and acquired expert DevOps and cloud computing knowledge - proven by the many AWS certifications I hold (incl. the top-level Solutions Architect Professional certification).
As a self-taught developer I had the chance to broaden my horizon by studying Business Administration where I hold a Master's degree. That enabled me to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. While learning, that I enjoy development more than these fields, the time in this sector greatly improved my overall experience and skills.
Experience as Instructor
As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enables me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses and more than 2,000,000 students on Udemy is the best proof for that.
Whether working as development instructor or teaching Business Administration I always received great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.
Together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience to our more than 2,000,000 students.
