Amazon AWS Essentials Course - Wellington - April 1st

HI !

Its been a while since I have posted on the forum, the reason being that I have shifted base from India to Wellington, New Zealand to pursue a Graduate Diploma in Information Assurance and Security.

I have one of the Teachers put me up on a career plan in which I have been given the opportunity to build certain extra skills which are going to help me become more employable at the end of my course when compare to my counterparts in the course.

Having said that I have enrolled in the 3 AWS Courses once after the other in the span of 7 Months.

I will be posting a review of this class.

Any suggestions or tips to be able to prepare for the class or learn more other than the course are welcome !

Any questions are also welcome !

Course price is 750$+GST for those who want to know how much it is.

    Yes ! They are not free in Australia !

    You should come to NZ for the course ! Just to cover the expenses ! Its cheaper flying in and out and doing the course versus doing the course in Australia !

    That's actually true! However, I don't think it makes sense to me career-wise at this point because we don't use Amazon AWS, so I will probably forget most of the stuff knowing that I wouldn't be using them in the next 1-2 yrs

    True. If you are not using it then no. Its better you do it when you need it.

    I am using it for the interview sake ! I have a little experience with it though !

    Just done with the course ! Introduction to AWS and the available services. Consists of 4 labs - EC2 , S3 , RDS and ELB !

    Gives a brief introduction to AWS and its services. Is a good primer if you dont work on the platform already!
