This's really a good initiative to keep the peoples educated in the new technologies and thereby improve their knowledge. This also provides a great opportunity for the people to develop their career.
Very good information about AWS services. however, it looks like a promotional program somehow. I think aws should add some lessons about comparing with other competitive services for a broader view.

Excellent introduction to AWS
By Stacey S•
This course has good content but doesn't give you the example application to work with. I think that's an oversight. It does give you a decent overview of AWS though so it was still quite useful for me.

The course was informative and straight to the point for those with AWS background, however it was lacking of at least couple labs scenarios for EC2 and S3 (very simple and short to implement)
By Michael Y Y•
A little short and simple but good introduction. Very clear explanations of the "why" behind each service.
By Athanasios K•
It started of well but after the 1st week the lectures started to cover too much ground and I was not able to follow up with hands on examples. Especially after the 2nd week I was simply watching the videos without any incentive to try anything out myself.
So I would suggest that the course has more hands-on examples that the students can actually try themselves. Otherwise, interest is lost and the course becomes a bit boring.
Overall, the course doesn't have to cover too much ground as long as the students can follow through with hands-on examples and exercises/assignments etc.
By Jamie R•
would like to know caveats as well
also, deep dive into setting up a vpc was too much, thought this was more of an overview course
By Lee C•
Would be better if there was more practical elements to the course. Very jargon and acronym heavy.
We need practice assignments to practice the operations the lesson videos demonstrate.
By Shanti R•
Lab exercise would be helpful
By Steven L•
I agree with some other reviewers that this course is more of a promotional ad, and technically explains what we are doing with AWS services, etc. It takes you step by step via AWS account at a somewhat faster pace than I anticipated. It does not thoroughly explain how and why we are doing these steps, services, etc. I was hoping there was a glossary of terms, several terms are unexplained and dismissed, or even assumed we knew. Overall, disappointing course.

Extremely less content

worst curse ever

I have done a little over one week portion of this course and I'm already loving it! I was a little worried that this course would be tooooo basic, which is in a way but in a great way! TBH most of the materials are available in detail on the AWS website and for free. But AWS training department did a great job on organizing the info and delivering it in the simplest and easiest way possible, especially for someone who doesn't come from any technical background. I hope this course could kick-start my interest in AWS and hopefully I can keep that interest all the way to the next step of this AWS certification roadmap.

Excellent course for beginner technical professionals as well as for non-technical or new people coming into the cloud computing field. The course is well-structured and provides excellent knowledge. Since it is for beginners, assignments were not expected otherwise some assignments should have been there to gain more confidence. However, there are quizzes for each major topic. A must course for anyone who is entering into cloud computing specifically Amazon Web Services (AWS).
By Ganesh K•
The course provided an excellent overview of concepts such as advantages of going to cloud, regions, Availability Zones, Creating an EC2 instance, Attaching sample application to the instance, VPC, RDS, DynamoDB databases, Storage on Cloud, monitoring and scaling, security and cost management. The lectures had enough demonstration to reinforce the idea. The reading material provided adequate information for learning.
Strongly recommended for beginners who are interested in AWS
This course is amazing. The video length of the lectures is just right. They don't stretch it too long and neither it is too short. Just the right duration. It engrossed my attention for the whole duration of the course. The assignments after each module are harder than the end of the course assignment, so don't take stress of the ending but just enjoy the trip. It was my first online course here on Coursera and I loved it.
By Woiyl H•
I really loved this course. I would like to have more courses, training from AWS. I enjoyed the demos from Morgan and Deep explanations from Blaine. Really that was awesome. Not forgetting our friend the lezard, It's the coolest example that I have ever had in my learning path. Thanks of course to Allen for giving this learning possibility. I will be really pleased to see more courses from you. Thanks a lot :-)
By Maxim S•
I take IT/Computer Science courses regularly for work and for my own education. This is by far one of the best courses I took in the last couple of years. Well explained, well structured, with example. Perfect! It also allowed me to pass AWS Practitioner exam with 900 score.
BTW, I took Practitioner exam preparation class at AWS site and it was boring a as hell.
By Christina J B•
This course helped me to gain the core fundamentals of the AWS and how the things work in cloud , apart from these the course was enriched with the ec2 , EDS , s3 , autos calling and much more , the content delivery was so good and nourishing, once again thanks AWS and COURSERA.
I had learn AWS fundamental concepts including Regions, Availability Zones, and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs)

I sincerely thank Coursera for this Opportunity in this lockdown period .
Thanks and Warm Regards.

Excellent introductory course. I like that the most important aspects of the AWS were explained in the videos. If you want more information, they placed the links of each service after each service presentation.
Very easy to understand the principles, english is perfectly spoken for non-native english speakers, the course laboratories really helps you understand all the terms.
By Thakkar H•
According to me it is best course for whom are familiar or not familiar to cloud computing. One who don't know cloud computing Blaine Sundrud's type of teaching is very well. He/she can learn basic concept of cloud computing. Morgan Willis have performed all practical with great explanation. Course is started from scratch of AWS to fundamentals of AWS. Really, great course.
By Akash P•
Excellent course to understand fundamentals of AWS. The way instructors presented the course material is very easy to understand and concise in nature. Apart from that, reading material and additional resources certainly help to gain better understanding of topics presented in the course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to know more about AWS.
By Deleted A•
This was one of the best courses that I have taken on Coursera. This course has really effective and useful content we need to know about AWS. Although it doesn't have hands-on-session still in the video series they have covered almost all the things. They have covered many AWS services with very less time, yet in an effective way. I have really enjoyed the course!!
By Harshith D S•
I would recommend you to take this course if you are interested in cloud computing through AWS. This course teaches you the basics of AWS and its basic features. If you want to involved in this course very well then you must have some prior knowledge of Networking. You can attain the basic knowledge of Networking through "The Bits and Bytes of Computer Networking".
