About the newsletter

Simple AWS is a different proposition from other educational content about cloud architecture or cloud computing.

The idea is not to teach you the basics, there's plenty of introductory-level courses already.
Neither is it to give you tutorials, AWS has some amazing workshops for that.

What I want to do is teach you the why behind the solutions, how to think about problems and solutions in the cloud, and how to architect better cloud solutions.
