Today Udacity launched a free, four-week Intro to Cloud Computing course that I have been working on for the last few months with Ami Malhoof. It’s a great course and if you are new to cloud computing, you should take it!

Ami had a really ambitious vision for this course, and I think it turned out really well. Over the course of five lessons, students:

  • Learn the basics of cloud computing
  • Boot a virtual machine locally
  • Create Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles and policies
  • Upload files to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3)
  • Launch an AWS Elastic Cloud Compute virtual server instance
  • Construct an AWS Lambda serverless function
  • Configure AWS API Gateway, Lambda, and S3 together to host a website

That’s a lot to accomplish in just a few weeks! And it’s free!
