I’ve just taken the plunge and registered an Amazon Web Services account. It’s time to see what all this cloud nonsense is all about.
I’ve just been playing around with a basic Lambda function for now, just finding my feet really. I’ll be looking for some decent tutorials today, to get some ideas on what would be valuable to learn/implement, and what services are worth tying together.
I definitely like the idea of leaving the infrastructure, high availability, scalability etc. concerns to another entity, and just focusing on the code (and minimising the cost of running said code).
Let’s see where this goes anyway, I might be considering migrating my other services over to AWS soon if I’m suitably impressed with its capabilities.
