AWS Snack, Season 2

"Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time." NOTE: This virtual self-study group will begin once a Senior Percolator has been identified to lead the group. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator. The second season of AWS Snack will focus on learning Amazon Web Services (AWS). Why AWS? Amazon is coming to town! NOTE: AWS Snack, Season 3 will follow Season 2 and will focus on Getting Started with Alexa Voice Service (AVS). The book we will use for Season 2 is the same we used for Season 1: Learn Amazon Web Services in a Month of Lunches David Clinton, author of our textbook, will be joining us to help answer the more challenging questions as they arise. Self-Study Group Format The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows: NOTE: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind. • Each participant obtains a copy of the same textbook: Learn Amazon Web Services in a Month of Lunches • Each participant commits to read one chapter per week, complete the exercises and post links to your completed work. • Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each chapter. Each participant will receive feedback, as well as, a weekly group e-mail update. Once you have access to the book, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.
