This is the eighth episode in a series on the cloud resume challenge series. In the last video we setup Route53 and pointed it at our CloudFront distribution, but received a 403 error as our CloudFront distribution wasn't yet setup to allow our custom domain, and didn't have HTTPS setup.

In this video we go through and add HTTPS for our CloudFront distribution so we can start to get rid of that 403 and have our CloudFront serve content from a custom domain.

If you’ve not heard of the cloud resume challenge, it’s a free challenge that you can take to build a resume using AWS.

It’s a great starting point for beginners or those new to the cloud. But… it’s definitely not for the faint of heart!

The challenge is tough and requires you to learn lots of different aspects of the cloud from CDN's to CI pipelines. The best way to learn any technology is by getting hands-on and using it in anger.

The point of this YouTube series is to provide some extra structure and guidance to the challenge for those daring to attempt it!

But it's not about giving you all the answers, just some prompts, and some ideas to push you in the right direction.

So... if you're thinking of getting into the cloud, do you dare take on the cloud resume challenge? 😁
