  • This course is for absolute starters with AWS


(Note: This is not a hands-on course, it's intented to get high level overview of AWS cloud platform and services)

In this short course I have covered the overview of AWS services and tried to show the sample architecture for the social media application. It covers core or important AWS services which you will typically use to build your application. Intent here is to not to advocate on production architecture but instead to show how various AWS services work together and where they fit into the puzzle. I hope that this high level overview helps you remember the purpose of AWS services in a better way. I hope you like it.

Kindly do not rate this course low because it doesn't provide hands-on exercises. Udemy restricts the length of the free course and hence will request to kindly rate this course based on its content to get high level view of AWS serivces.

This course is for those who are new to AWS and want to understand what all AWS Services exist as of today and more importantly their purpose and what problem they solve.

For detailed and hands-on practical based courses for AWS, see my other courses on "AWSwithChetan" or here on Udemy.

I am having 19+ years of IT industry experience and I am  working in cloud computing domain from over 7+ years. I am experienced in architecting highly available, scalable, secure cloud infrastructure and single click cloud infrastructure automation using tools like CloudFormation, Terraform and more. I have designed and built multiple cloud solutions for enterprise and startup companies. I have also been helping customers evaluate their DevOps maturity and build CI/CD pipelines across domains. I am proficient in multiple DevOps tools like Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Ansible etc

Along with learning new technologies, I am passionate about sharing my experience with others. I believe that challenge isn’t in learning new technology but using the right technology in right way. I have been conducting practical oriented AWS Cloud Training from past 5 years and my AWS training program has helped many professionals to start and uplift their career in AWS and DevOps space.

I believe in learning by doing and that's why all the training courses I conduct includes lots of hands on exercises and assignments from very beginning. In my opinion, after you get basic knowledge of the topic you want to learn, directly go and implement small use cases. Go on further extending what you implement. In this process you will come across some roadblocks and that's where you learn and that learning lasts forever.

Happy learning !!
