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 implement meet IT or application requirements.
This course provides all the knowledge needed to pass the CLF-C01 Cloud Practitioner certification 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.
As part of this course, you will learn:
- What exactly AWS and cloud computing is
- What key benefits of cloud computing are
- How the global AWS infrastructure looks like & how you can benefit from it
- What services like EC2, S3, RDS, DynamoDB, EBS, EFS, ECS, Lambda, VPC & many, many more are all about

- How multiple services can be combined to solve certain problems
- How AWS customers can migrate to the cloud of implement a hybrid cloud solution
- How to follow best practices when building for the cloud

- And much more!
This course provides a thorough services overview and concise summaries for the individual services. You will get access to the more than 200 theory slides and you can go through the videos as often as needed (also to come back and refresh your knowledge).

I feel like I learned a ton and feel like I can build custom apps to store on the flat thingy I keep in my pocket! Thanks for the course. It's great. Highly recommended.
As always, great teacher. I got a lot out of the React course and React Native is starting out just as helpful. Never would have made it through bootcamp without Maximillian!
