About the Course

This course will introduce you to Amazon Web Services (AWS) core services and infrastructure. Through demonstrations you'll learn how to use and configure AWS services to deploy and host a cloud-native application. Early in the course, your AWS instructors will discuss how the AWS cloud infrastructure is built, walk you through Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Lightsail compute services. They'll also introduce you to networking on AWS, including how to set up Amazon Virtual Public Cloud (VPC) and different cloud storage options, including Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Amazon Elastic File Service (EFS). Later in the course you'll learn about AWS Database services, such as Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and Amazon DynomoDB. Your instructors will also walk you through how to monitor and scale you application on AWS using Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon EC2 Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) and Auto Scaling. Lastly, you'll learn about security on AWS, as well as how to manage costs when using the AWS cloud platform. In this course, you won't be required to complete hands-on exercises, but we strongly suggest you take advantage of the AWS Free Tier to follow along as the instructors demonstrate the AWS services. Class forums will also allow you to ask questions and interact with AWS training instructors. After completing this course, you'll have the basic fundamentals to get started on AWS. This course has been developed by AWS, and is delivered by AWS technical instructors who teach cloud computing courses around the globe....

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.

got a better insight of AWS , how it could make our work easy, but if little more technical knowledge from Instructor Morgan side would have been given , then are experience would have been better.

Great course for the beginners but needs a bit of hands on part, apart this it has great trainers and a very good visualisation of how the services are working in real time. Highly recommended.

I have been constantly following the discussion board. There are no instructors to reply to your inquiries. Nonetheless, this course is very useful first step towards AWS certifications.

This course gives me a basic and comprehensive introduction of AWS products. Those drawings are my favorite because they are really helpful for my understanding of the AWS structure.

No pude hacer algunos laboratorios porque ya requerían algo de pre configuraciones que no tenia y no venían explicadas, fuera de eso es bastante bueno para comenzar a entender AWS.

Nice overview of AWS! Liked the block diagrams - they really helped me understand how the various pieces connect. I'd like to see a flowchart or checklist to help me get started.

Very well done, a bit more hands on with labs would make it even better. The instructors made the course enjoyable and interesting. Morgan's lab helped me deploy a live website.

Interesante curso para conocer los productos de Amazon AWS e iniciarse. Las prácticas no funcionan tal y como te dicen en los vídeos si tienes una cuenta gratuita de Amazon.

Found the course helpful for those who are new to AWS. For those with more experience, this course was a high level overview and does not go into great in-depth details

The course was pretty good, especially the visuals to walk beginners through the material. I would have liked some practice study guides to help prepare for the CCP.

If you plan to pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam, this course is mandatory. However, you might need some other resources to increase your overall score.

This course has got some awesome content even for cloud beginners. It would be a 5 star course if they had provided temporary credentials for hands-on learning.

Very good in terms of insights to AWS working, could be more detailed and more questions created, A better graphical representation of facts can also be done.

It is a good course to understand some, but important AWS services. Do not expect a lot of practical exercises. For me, it was more like a theoretical course.

well done course videos, etc. However, some of the labs were not up to date. Questions were asked in the forums, but no one from AWS or Coursera answered.

Could have been more indepth. However the basics concepts were cleared.

Also the link to the next course could have been provided. Will start the next one
