FREE LEARNINGS
And now to something that doesn’t have anything to do with World Backup Day 🙂

If you like to learn new things without paying, Amazon is offering a number of FREE AWS courses. There’s a variety of courses. You “buy” them for $0, similar to how you get free Kindle e-books or free videos or mp3s at the Amazon website.

As of the time of writing these only work on desktops and laptops per the Amazon page (including Chromebooks). The course “runs” on Amazon’s website. I haven’t tried running it on a tablet with the browser in desktop mode to see if it works in such a configuration. Chromebooks are the new tablets, at least in the non-iOS world 🙂

AWS is Amazon Web Services. A good starting point might be their Cloud Essentials course…

It’s already Prime Day in Europe and at the Amazon Germany website there’s among others a Canon gear sale that includes the 90D, the G3X, and lenses of different kinds (EF, EF-S, EF-M, RF)… A total of nine options is available as of the time of writing…

But that’s not all! There’s also a big (two page) Sony-priority camera gear sale that includes various Sony lenses, the RX100 III, the 7R II body only, lenses from Samyang, Zeiss Batis, Pentax (eg 50/1.8 SMC DA for 100 euro), and Tamron, Panasonic S5, Steiner binos, and more!

There’s also a sale of action cameras and drones

Next up we have the Storage Sale that includes Sandisk SD and microSD, Samsung, Lexar, Axe and more, three pages of them! There’s even some CompactFlash UDMA7 of the Lexar kind!

The interesting thing with Prime, even if you live in a country that does not get Prime delivery (eg within the scope of Amazon Germany), you can still sign up for the 30-day Prime free trial and get the sale price. But you won’t get the free shipping benefits or any of the other DRM-restricted benefits (video, ebooks, etc)…
