About the course

Cloud Computing is expected to generate trillions of dollars in revenues over the next few years. Companies are adopting the trend to cut costs and speed up the development and deployment of state-of-the-art applications. Therefore, cloud computing skills will continue to be in high demand. There is no better time than now to start your cloud career journey.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the leader in public cloud computing for 10 years in a row. Learning AWS is a great leap in the career of professionals aspiring to a career in cloud computing.

Based on our experience at DolfinED with more than 100 thousand students, a great starting point in learning Amazon Web Services (AWS) is to go over an introduction to as many AWS services as required with a high-level introduction to Cloud computing in general, then introducing the basic principles of what architecture means, and how to architect on AWS.

This course is second to none in introducing AWS using a scaffolding approach. The course is a little over 4 hours in length and comes with hands-on labs to help you create your first AWS account to enable you to learn by doing. 

Mastering the content in this course will give you a kickstart to your first AWS certification. Be it AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner, AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate, AWS Certified Developer Associate or AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Associate.
