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…
