Course was awesome and concentrated on the items critical to passing the exam. Looking forward to taking the test soon.

Catalin12 October 2020

Excellent and intuitive eye-opening explanation. Very smart guy which makes you feel he enjoys teachings. Good job man! 500000 Stars!

Matteo12 October 2020

The blend of theory and hands-on really helped to understand all the necessary AWS services for the cloud practitioner certification without getting overwhelmed. Stephane is an amazing teacher, and makes learning about AWS extremely simple.

Angela11 October 2020

I wish he went into more detail on what the AWS console is used for and why IAM is important at a high level

Shambhavi11 October 2020

I took this course to take the AWS CCP exam. The course is pretty sufficient to pass the exam with a good score. AWS concepts are well explained and demonstrated throughout. Stephen's teaching method is interesting and keeps us engaged.

Picard11 October 2020

Pourquoi demander une carte de crédit (et la charger) pour la création d'un compte si l'on suit la partie gratuite?

Naga11 October 2020

This is an amazing overview of AWS services and course content for beginners. The lectures were very energetic and easy to understand.

Lim11 October 2020

Great course. Stephane covered the AWS topics comprehensively and explained the concepts well. However as there were so many services that were introduced during this course, it would help greatly to provide an architecture diagram of how all these services will integrate with each other just to cement the learner's understanding further. Great course overall, highly recommended!!

Kirtesh11 June 2020

This course helps me to gain fundamental knowledge of AWS and AWS services. Stephane explained concepts very well. It was informative, a good starting point for the beginner, and going over all the AWS services. This gives an overview of the AWS cloud.

Seyed11 June 2020

I'm an IT guy, and I've been using a couple of AWS services at work, but didn't seriously explore the broader services. This course has been pretty useful right from explaining the benefits of Cloud to exploring various areas of AWS

Ramana11 June 2020

You are an amazing teacher who can teach the complex things in a very simple way and easy to understand. Thank you so much for a wonderful course and the efforts you are putting in to share your knowledge.

Preeti10 June 2020

I am new to AWS. But this course makes it so much easier to understand it. Also a big thanks to the instructor. He is just the best.

Kannan10 June 2020

So far amazing and is above expectations. Love the shared responsibility and quiz section at the end of each topic

Rishikesh10 June 2020

thanks for adding real life examples and for using so basic language so that its so clear and understandable

Meenakshi10 June 2020

My experience with this course is super. I am so excited and eager to learn more and more about AWS. Even understanding difficult concepts is made so very easy here. Thanks.
