AWS in Motion

Video description

See it. Do it. Learn it! AWS in Motion introduces you to working with the Amazon Web Services cloud platform through high-quality video-based lessons and built-in exercises, so you can put what you learn into practice.

AWS in Motion guides you through your first steps of deploying a web application on AWS, teaching you the basics of the AWS ecosystem. You'll start by setting up a free AWS account, and then you'll learn how a typical web stack runs and scales in the cloud in a manner that can beat any physical data center! In nearly 3 hours of easy-to-follow video lessons, you'll explore the many services available in the AWS ecosystem.

About the Technology

Back in the big iron, glass-walled server room days, you only had one choice when it came to data centers: guess how much horsepower you'd need under maximum load, build your own server farm, and watch it take up space, money, and energy even when it wasn't being used at full capacity. With the AWS cloud platform, you can forget about hardware maintenance and cuts your computing and storage costs to just what you need, just when you need it! Amazon Web Services offers you the networking, compute, and security services you need to host everything from small web apps to full-scale enterprise systems. AWS is the gold standard of cloud platforms, offering innovative services for everything from supercomputing to machine learning.

About the Video

Packed with exercises and tutorials to try out, you can learn how to work with AWS in a way that makes sense: by working with AWS directly. We've designed the lessons to work within a free trial subscription to AWS, so you can get started without spending anything on a live AWS account. With the expert training of the Wittig brothers, the authors of our bestselling Amazon Web Services in Action, you can rest easy knowing you've learnt the foundation that every AWS developer needs to succeed, and fast!
