FROM THE AUTHOR I am AWS certified (Solutions Architect - Associate level) and have over 20 years of experience in IT. I adopted AWS early, back in 2008, when setting up an AWS based SaaS business. As part of this project, I coached, for several years, a team of system admins and developers on this technology. For the last couple of years, I have been teaching a webinar based AWS solutions architecture course. This book has evolved from this long experience using and teaching AWS. I hope you will find it useful.
