Cloud Computing#

Cloud computing is taking over the IT world. Not completely - there's still huge scope for physical, dedicated hardware - but for the most part it's the ideal condidate for a lot of organisations. It's going to be important for you to understand the basics of Cloud computing, and we're going to get you to a point you can create infrastructure in AWS.
