☑ Learn to upload files to the cloud using PHP and Amazon S3
☑ Learn to use Amazon S3 with CloudFront
This is a small course focus on uploading files to the cloud in this case Amazon S3 which stands for Amazon Simple Storage Service. The great thing about S3 is that is very cheap and very scaleable.
Wether you are building a blog, video or photo application as your application gets bigger you might need to start saving your data somewhere else rather than in your server.
Hosting your videos and photos with S3 can really improve your application speed, hosting prices and even your SEO results.
This course focuses on Amazon S3 but after you learn how to do it wth S3 you will find easier to do it with other cloud space providers.

I liked the teacher but ran into a number of technical obstacles when running the examples, most likely because they are outdated.
even I don't know php but it seems to be interesting. Now, I am eagerly waiting to ahead deep into CloudFront.
Perfect, exactly what i was looking for! Edwin go straight to the point in this course and it's very easy to understand, i spend more time trying to figure how it works by myself than following this course and applying the concepts at the same time!
This course covers everything you need to know in order to upload files to an amazon s3 bucket and display the contents of the bucket on screen, including how to manage access to the bucket in the AWS manager and some example debugging. Edwin goes through everything in detail, but quite quickly so it is occasionally difficult to keep up, but that's OK as pausing the video or going back a few seconds allows you the time to catch up. Everything is in bite-sized chunks so you don't have to wade through loads of irrelevant material if you are looking for something particular when recapping. Note that (at the time of writing) Amazon have changed the S3 and IAM consoles so they look quite different to what's in the videos, but finding the functionality required is quite easy so it's not a big problem.
Edwin is hands-down one of the best PHP instructors I have ever have the privilege of learning from. highly recommended
