Discover what you should know about the cloud and AWS before watching this course.
- [Instructor] For what you need to know to take this class, that's a difficult question. This isn't a starting class, but it isn't an expert class. It's somewhere in the middle. So I'm assuming that you've got basic knowledge of the cloud, what a cloud is. You've got some knowledge of corporate networking or on-premise networking and that you know what a subnet is. You know about IP addresses. The trick is Amazon's going to do everything a little bit differently so you want a baseline to start with. You also should be taking this class to understand AWS a little bit better. And networking infiltrates pretty well every AWS service that you're going to deploy. If you're an administrator, if you're a developer, if you're a project manager, you're probably going to be involved with some level of networking. Whether you're setting up users as an administrator, whether you're hosting applications as a developer or you're managing the entire project as a project manager. And of course, if you're just interested in what Amazon is doing with networking, even if you don't have a really, really strong networking background, I think if you watched the course, look at the demos, you can probably follow along. But certainly more networking knowledge is better. As I'm doing demos, you're probably going to want to get your hands dirty and look at the network at AWS directly and you can do that for free. What you can do is sign up for what's called the AWS Free Tier which gives you 12 months of access to a lot of the services that we're going to be looking at. I.e. networking services and guess what? You can follow along and do the same demos that I'm doing and I'll bet you would cost you maybe $10. Most of the things you build at AWS networking wise are absolutely free. So I highly recommend you sign up for a free account. And you don't even have to use a credit card these days. You can even use a debit card. So there's some knowledge levels for you to consider when taking this class.
