This course is for the absolute beginner. Have you ever wanted to know, in very simple terms, the answer to the following questions?: What is the cloud? What is AWS? What are AWS's core services? Why do we use AWS? If you answered yes to any of these, then this course is for you. Our goal with this course is to provide a simple, conceptual introduction to the concepts of Cloud Computing, Amazon Web Services, and it's core services. There are no technical explanations or definitions to memorize — this course is visual, and strictly conceptual. When you are done with this course, you will have the conceptual foundation to move forward onto more advanced AWS courses. By having the frame-of-reference understanding from this course, you will be more prepared to tackle the more complex technical concepts and terminology.

Welcome to the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Course.
Are you a business professional, accountant, sales person, or some other type of non-technical person that works in the tech industry? Have you always wanted to know what cloud computing is, how it works, and what it's used for - without all the technical jargon? If you answered YES, then the Certified Cloud Practitioner course and exam are perfect for you.
As the cloud computing industry continues to grow, understanding it's concepts, purpose, and use cases will become an increasingly valuable skill among non I.T. individuals and employees. What that in mind, AWS created an exam that covers the very basics of their cloud computing platform, and that tests you on basic AWS services, benefits, concepts, and use cases. All without having to know detailed technical terms, concepts, and know-how.
For all those who want to learn these basics, this course has been designed with two main objectives in mind: (1) Prepare you to pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam, and (2) learn the foundations of cloud computing and AWS, including its primary services, benefits, and use cases.
This course is NOT designed to teach you how to build and run applications on AWS. This course is all about conceptual understanding. If you are looking for an introduction to AWS course from a hands-on/cloud engineering perspective, please see our AWS Essentials course.

Serverless architecture is rapidly growing and gaining a strong foothold in today's businesses. AWS Lambda provides the ability for developers and teams to focus strictly on their code, not having to worry about the infrastructure that hosts it.
This Amazon Web Services Lambda Deep Dive will take you in for a low-level look at the service and it's core concepts so you can utilize it to meet your needs! We have set up several lessons, hands-on live activities, and real-world scenarios for you to use to learn as much as possible.
Now, let's get serverless!
In this course, you will build what is possibly your first fullstack serverless application using AWS. We'll look at everything required to develop and deploy a web application using purely serverless technologies.
If you're not sure what 'serverless' is, don't worry! We'll also briefly explain the benefits (and the drawbacks) you get when working with technologies that offload server maintenance and configuration to a provider like AWS. You'll work with AWS services that include Lambda, DynamoDB, API Gateway, and S3 to create a fully-functional serverless application.
In this course, you will build out a serverless alerting chatbot application using AWS. We'll learn and walk through everything required to develop and deploy the chatbot using AWS Lambda, Amazon Lex and a few other AWS services.
