First off, it is incredibly exciting to see so many hungry to learn individuals in one place! When I first started programming I taught myself a lot of JS, HTML, and CSS before moving on to getting my degree in Computer Science. I believe the best way to learn anything is by actually doing stuff. That is how I have gotten to become an engineering manager and a Certified AWS Solutions Architect.
On that note I have spoken with a few FCC alum and code school alum here in Oregon. The one thing that comes up is people are hungry to learn AWS but find it incredibly overwhelming to do so. As someone that has learned a lot about AWS (and continues to learn everyday), I think the best way to learn is by doing.
Therefore, I have been writing a few blog articles recently about how to get started learning Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This has gotten me thinking about writing an ebook about learning AWS by working through practical problems and learning the services as you go. Before I get to far with that though I wanted to post here at FCC and see what you are hungry to learn with regards to AWS, or even just the cloud in general.
The cloud is not the most important thing for you to learn. However, as you progress you will want to learn more and more, so if you have any ideas please throw them out as I would love to hear them. If you have any questions for me directly go ahead and post those as well!
