At this moment, we see almost every tech organization is shifting towards cloud deployment of their products, where AWS is one of the top preferences. While applying for co-op and internships, you might have observed that many employers either demand knowledge of AWS/Azure or find it as an asset in the candidate. The purpose of this 4-part seminar series is to equip students with a foundational understanding of AWS, thus enhancing their competitiveness for interviews, and facilitating their journey towards AWS Certifications.


Workshop Outline:

Introduction and Cloud Networking Concepts: This will include an overview of the AWS Console, AWS CLI, concepts of Regions and Availability zones, VPC, Subnets, Security Groups, NAT gateways, IAM, STS, and monitoring tools like CloudTrail and CloudWatch.



The seminar content is accessible without prior cloud computing experience. However, a solid understanding of computer science fundamentals, including operating systems, networking, programming, and databases, will be essential.

If you wish to follow along with the presentation, feel free to create an AWS account and leverage the Free Tier to explore and practice the concepts in your environment.
