AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner

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.

CompTIA's Cloud Essentials - New

Hello and welcome to CompTIA Cloud Essentials. In this class, we will prepare you for the CompTIA CLO-001 certification which is CompTIA’s entry-level cloud certification. If you have not had any experience with cloud computing this is the perfect place to get started. We will look at the basic concepts of cloud computing and the major advantages and challenges of cloud computing. Specifically, in this class, we will first start with an introduction to cloud computing. We will review the basic terminology and the major cloud service categories.

Next, we will look at cloud computing from a business perspective and the major issues that are important to an organization. After that, we will look at cloud computing from a technical perspective. We will look at such issues as the major difference between public and private clouds, techniques for cloud computing deployment, cloud computing risks and challenges and the impact of cloud computing on application development.

After that, we will look at the steps an organization must take to successfully adopt cloud computing.

For the final two sections, we will look at how a company should operate with cloud comping and the steps they need to take with basic governance.

By the end of this class, you will be well prepared for the CLO-001 exam and will thoroughly understand the basic concepts that drive cloud computing today. You will be in a great position to help your organization transition to cloud computing and take advantage of one of the most exciting areas of information technology today.

Kubernetes the Hard Way

Kubernetes is a powerful tool for container orchestration. There are many different ways to bootstrap a Kubernetes cluster, many of which make the process easier by abstracting some of the details. Kelsey Hightower's open source guide, Kubernetes the Hard Way, goes through how to bootstrap a Kubernetes cluster without the use of installers or scripts. While there is nothing wrong with using installers or scripts, this approach gives you a deeper understanding of the details of Kubernetes. This course is an adaptation of the Kubernetes the Hard Way guide. It is intended to walk you through it and provide some additional explanation of each step along the way.

Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer

This course is designed to not only help you pass the Google Cloud Certified - Associate Cloud Engineer exam but also to learn the real-world skills you'll need to be a cloud engineer. This course loosely follows the domain objectives outlined in the certification info. However, instead of just walking you through each bullet point and showing how that particular item works, without any context, we’ve chosen to use a scenario.

In this scenario, you’ve been hired by a startup called Find Seller. They're working on an app that allows users to post a picture of an item and tag it as something they want to buy or sell. They’re having trouble getting funded because currently all of their technology resides on the developers' laptops, and they don’t have any idea how to move to the cloud. That’s where you and I enter the scenario. You’ve been hired as a junior cloud operations engineer, and I’ll be working as a senior cloud engineer. I’ll be mentoring you as we’re assigned tasks from our boss, and we’ll go through the process of deploying and maintaining the application.

Here are some of the areas of focus:

  • Set up a cloud solution environment.
  • Plan and configure a cloud solution.
  • Deploy and implement a cloud solution.
  • Ensure successful operation of a cloud solution.
  • Configure access and security.

By the end of this course, you should be ready to pass the Google Cloud Certified- Associate Cloud Engineer Exam.
