The use of cloud infrastructure has become the standard way of implementing IT platforms because they offer flexibility and services that are hard to achieve in a local data centre.  The problem is that the cost of cloud infrastructures can and will go up exponentially. For example, the average spending of companies on Amazon Web Services is $140,000 per year and it goes up to $830,000 per year for larger companies.

The interesting fact is that less than half of this money is spent on servers and databases which work in Production capacity. Companies are losing the exorbitant amount of money on server and databases that are used for development and testing purposes and so they are used for a certain amount of time each day.

I have created this course to show to engineers and managers that how they can optimize their spendings on AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Aref is an experienced software engineer passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience with others.

He completed a masters degree in Software Engineering but his journey with programming began when he was just 13 years old (with a Commodore 64 computer).

At age 17, Aref sold his first commercial software, a real estate management program written in Turbo Pascal. He also developed an interest and high proficiency in 8085 and 8086 assembly languages. This interest led to a period where he worked in the electronics industry building industrial automation devices.

As a (cheeky) hobby, Aref worked on computer viruses that came to the attention of Peter Norton. Googling “Aref.890” turns up some interesting information!  

Since this time, Aref has continued to build a variety of enterprise software solutions using engineering tools and frameworks such as FoxPro, Delphi, C++, C#, Grafana, New Relic, TeamCity, and Bamboo.

Aref is also passionate about teaching, spending 3.5 years working as a high school teacher in Iran. He now channels this passion into online teaching and is grateful for the opportunity to teach many students around the world.

He has published two books around software development one of which was published when he was 19 years old.

Aref currently works in Australia as a technology leader, and he enjoys working with talented engineers and creating various software architecture solutions for clients.
