Course Overview
Hello, my name is Lynn Monson, and welcome to my course, Adopting AWS: Watch This First. I'm the owner of the consulting company ProHakr. I've built many systems on Amazon Web Services and love to help people get started. Over a million companies rely on AWS every single day. The services you find there are rapidly becoming the new foundation on which applications are built. But jumping into AWS can be a challenge. It's not easy to adopt AWS on your own, and that's where this course comes in. You will learn everything you need to know to put your adoption of AWS on solid footing and headed in the right direction. The course covers specific and targeted best practices for your adoption. This includes how to create and set up your accounts, how to protect your account with the proper initial security structure, how to run your first project on AWS and where you can find that project within your company, how to see the big picture of the AWS services, and especially how to exploit them to out innovate your competition. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge and confidence to begin an AWS adoption. You won't need experience with AWS in order to get started, but you will need to know general data center IT concepts. You should either have an AWS account already or be ready to create one. I'm excited to help you get started. I hope you will join me on the journey to the cloud with the Adopting AWS: Watch This First course on Pluralsight.
