About the course

In this course, you will learn the basics of what cloud computing is, how it is used, and why it is important.

We will also go over certain "as a service" models, including PaaS, IaaS, FaaS, and SaaS.

You will learn the difference between servers and "serverless," and we’ll take a look at what jobs you can land in the cloud.

This course is perfect for beginners as there are no prerequisites for this course. The only thing we ask is that you have a passion to start your cloud journey and learn as much as you can!

Let’s get ready to have some fun!
