About the course

This course is for the absolute beginner. Have you ever wanted to know: 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 Amazon’s cloud services. There are no technical explanations or definitions to memorize — this course is visual, and strictly conceptual. When you are done, 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.
