    For those of you who do not know, AWS or Amazon Web Services is a cloud computing platform that can be used for various functions. From using EC2 for hosting a server to using Route53 to attach a domain name and S3 to host images - there is no cloud task that AWS does not enable you to do. And with the future demand expected to grow for the adoption of cloud computing, AWS is going to be more popular than ever, generating hundreds of thousands of technical job roles.DevOps Course in Bangalore


    But why only AWS and not others?

    But then, how do I start off?

    1. Start using AWS free modules- Yes, a couple of functionalities are accessible for free and you can get around the same, understand them better by working with them.
    2. Learning some basic shell commands (Linux of course) will be quite helpful in the process.
    3. Try using and learning the various popular modules/instances of AWS-You should know your way around SNS, SQS, EC2, S3, Lambda, and a few more. Tough, but there is plenty of free material online that you could go through and understand how to work with them. And once you understand, you can move to the next level of automating a few tasks with small scripts.
    4. Enroll in a training program or find a course that fits you well- Cloud Computing might be one of the hottest new skills in the market with everyone
      1. rushing in to find a job role. However, navigating through the tough waters of learning AWS and cloud computing can be made simpler if you have the right expert guiding you. With an industry expert training you through practical challenges, you will learn better and faster. I personally recommend CloudThat's AWS training program - as they have trained several thousand individuals and continue to provide skill-based training even to experienced AWS engineers!
      2. Join an online community- Learning alone isn't fun - but going through different challenges together with a strong community might make your learning better and teach you faster. You do not just face your issues - you come across several new ones being faced by others like you. Not only that, but you also learn about the trends, new introductions, etc. much faster when you join an online community/forum.

      In AWS, there is a lot to learn indeed. Even with your first simple web app hosted and functioning, you could learn a lot more complex functionality. But after being trained by an expert and reaching a stage where you can make sense of online community discussions on AWS, you can easily figure the way ahead!
