AWS offers cloud computing classes on Twitch
Published 1 February 2021
Yes, you’ve read that right. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is offering cloud computing classes on popular streaming platform Twitch – for free.
The cloud computing giant recently launched an eight-part weekly series called AWS Dev Hour: Building Modern Applications, where developers from AWS go live on Twitch and teach viewers how to build an end-to-end serverless application on the AWS Cloud.
This initiative is part of AWS’ grand plan to train 29 million cloud-ready professionals by 2025.
“Providing free access to technical skills training has been an important priority for us for many years. We know access to skills training can help unlock opportunities and have a positive, long-term impact for our employees, customers, and communities,” said Scott Barneson, Director of Learning Products at AWS Training and Certification.
Barneson also revealed that the series will delve into how to build cloud-native applications on AWS Dev services, architecture, serverless, microservices, and DevOps.
The live Twitch classes will be interactive and hands-on. Viewers will have the opportunity to submit questions about cloud computing and share their progress with everyone on the broadcast.
