Self taught guide to cloud computing

The other day I tweeted:

I decided to put a GitHub repo with a learning path, resources, and projects, I would take to gain a junior cloud engineer skillset in about 6 months. Here it is.

My self taught guide to cloud computing.

Learn the fundamentals of Cloud Computing in 6 months


Watch the guide here

This is the learning path we would take if we had to start over again and work our way up to a junior cloud engineer skill set in about 6 months. Any links you see ARE NOT AFFILIATE LINKS, we don't want your money. Okay, let's go.

Go to Phase 1: Linux and Networking


This is a guide based on our experiences of going from help desk to Cloud and DevOps engineers. You journey is yours and you may need to learn different things at different stages.

We tried to keep it as general and using the most popular options (in terms of content, community, and jobs) as possible. Mainly because these things are important when you're getting started. As you grow, you'll need to get specialized in certain areas :)

Study tips and resources

I also created a YouTube video with an overview of the guide.

This is based on my own experience. Your journey is yours. However, I still wanted to share in case anyone finds something useful.
