Over the past few months, I have been focusing on teaching cloud technologies with Amazon Web Services and other providers. I created a rather a large collection of resources which will help you to learn Amazon Web Services.
First of all, here’s a series of blog posts for total beginners with Amazon Web Services:
- AWS EC2 Web Console Tutorial: Creating WordPress in Minutes

Then, here’s a more advanced blog post on ECS and Docker: Deploying Node and Mongo Containers on Amazon Web Services Elastic Container Service (AWS ECS)
Lastly, make sure to checkout some free preview lectures of these Node University courses:

Amazon Web Services is de-facto a standard of cloud computing. Every software engineers should know at least its basics if not know it to an intermediate level.
