The quiz questions are not always precise, and often have grammatical errors. Some courses are PPT-only, and could be improved to show corresponding AWS console page.
After taking this course, I've learnt a lot of different AWS services. I've also gained sufficient knowledge to take the AWS associate level developer certification
Too often this course instructs you to go read documentation not provided by this course. Then why buy this course if it's only going to tell you to go someplace else to get the information ?
This Instructor is awesome. Easy and clear, straight to the points of the respective concepts. I have also used others but this one is greatest of all. Keep up the good work Alan.
Alan uses Windows, which wouldn't be a problem if there were a Linux version of this same course. I also think that it's very dry and there's a lot of Alan just reading what is on the screen. I'm not sure I see the advantage of having this in a video format, because it would probably be easier to accomplish this with a few pages of a PDF or web format. He also spends some time just explaining how ACLs work, but I'm not sure I see the point. It isn't going to teach someone about ACLs if they don't already know what ACLs are. At the same time he doesn't explain much of what anything else is like Static and Dynamic addresses, subnets, ports, protocols, or even how or what nginx does, so why do ACLs get an explanation and nothing else? I think some links at the end of each section to read more into some of the concepts from that section would be more valuable than the dry shallow overview given in the video. As far as the content goes that I do find useful it's pretty good. I like that he breaks down the basic hierarchy of the components for EC2s and how you can create and manage them. All in all so far I've learned some valuable information, but I think some brevity about non-AWS-specific things, and more focus on AWS-specific things might be nice. Exercises or challenges would be nice.
From a guy who dont know anything about AWS, i like to say that i really learned alot and its great for beginners.
Best efforts by the instructor, thanks for sharing. There was some technical issue in 2nd video, please rectify it
l love how easy to understand the course is I am new to aws and this course is very ideal for new learners as the instructor is very detailed but takes time to thoroughly explain concepts.
