Description

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the hottest trends in the field of technology nowadays. It provides individuals and organizations with innovative tools and techniques to deploy or migrate their entire infrastructure on to the AWS platform. Therefore, it is quite essential that any AWS aspirant would need to learn all those features and services, that would give him/her enough knowledge and confidence to start his/her career in this very domain.

This course is meant to get you started in AWS. The title says that it's the hard way to learn to AWS, but it's actually not. It's only the "hard" way because this course instructs you in AWS by slowly building and establishing skills through various theoretical concepts, practical sessions, assignments and quizzes, then applying them to increasingly difficult deployment techniques. By the end of this course, you will have the tools and concepts needed to begin learning more complex AWS topics.

If you work hard, take your time, and build skills, you will learn how to deploy and manage your infrastructure on AWS cloud.

There is no prerequisite required to enroll for this course. It is just that you should have a basic understanding of computers and servers.

Last but not the least -- This is just the beginning of this journey and we will study together to achieve best results. Feel free to reach out to me through Udemy, Facebook, Linkedin and E-mail. Also, there would be multiple additions to this course in the near future. Based upon your valuable feedback and market trend, more and more content would be added to this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • No pre-knowledge is required - enthusiasm is all you need!
  • Individuals interested in learning how to get started with using AWS
  • SysOps administrators, Solution Architects and developers interested in using AWS services
