This a truly an age of Cloud Computing, and needless to say, AWS is the leader in this industry. It is way ahead of its competitors like Microsoft and Google in terms of innovation. More and more companies, whether small-to-medium enterprises, or big corporations like GE and Netflix are harnessing the power of this truly great platform. This means that there is and will be a huge demand of AWS professionals, including Solutions Architects, who can very well guide clients and organizations through all phases of deployment of the entire infrastructure on AWS platform.       
As an experienced AWS Solutions Architects, I have found that there is a huge gap between the skills required and employers’ expectations. There are a lot of courses in the marketplace that will guarantee you passing of the certificate examinations, but never let you know what you’re going to do afterwards. Apart from looking for certified professionals, employers are keenly looking for a right skill set and practical exposure, which these courses will not render you. Hence, I have come up with this course that will cover all aspects, including giving you enough practical exposure and hands-on knowledge.       
Why you should go for this course?     
•No empty promises: This course is intended to give you as much practical knowledge as I can. It all depends how much you can grasp from it.   
•Updated content: AWS developers are very fast in updating their services and features. I always make sure to update lectures and demos whenever some changes are announced.   
•Complete questionnaire: At the end of this course, you will get access to three sets of quizzes, with 60 questions in each. These 180 questions are real time questions that will help you clear your AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate examination with an excellent score. You don’t need to buy a separate course to get access to these kind of practice tests, and the best part is that there is a proper explanation for each of these questions.
•Detailed documentation: Each section consists of some detailed documents and assignments for you to access and hone your skills.   
•Help & guidance: I’m available for you to guide you through any of your queries and problems. After you raise your question, you will be guaranteed a response within 24 hours.   
•Live sessions: I will be hosting live sessions on monthly basis. This will give you an opportunity to interact with me and get your questions answered.     
Let’s see in a nutshell what topics you’ll learn in this course:   
•Introduction to AWS 
•AWS Global Infrastructure 
•Elastic Compute (EC2) 
•Elastic Beanstalk 
•Command Line Interface (CLI) 
•Security Groups 
•Classic Load Balancer 
•Application Load Balancer 
•Auto Scaling 
•Identity and Access Management (IAM)

You can refer to some of the recent feedbacks given by students:     
Juan Gongora: I’m almost halfway done through this course, and I can definitely say in good confidence, that the content supplied here is great. I took Rohan’s previous course “Learn AWS the Hard Way” and learned a ton about cloud computing in general. So I was eager to enroll to this one when I found out he had released a Solutions Architect course. I will update this review once I have taken the exam to let you guys know how it went. But so far I can say that I am definitely enhancing my current understanding of AWS, as well as learning some new usages.       
Dennis John: A wonderful course. Having gone halfway through the course (and also having gone through another course by the same author), I can say, I like the way he presents the course, first explaining the theory in detail, then getting hands on and doing a demo of the feature that he explained. The author seems to have very good experience on the topic, especially when he mentions the “gotcha” scenarios. Looking forward to the remainder of the course.     
At the end, you may be thinking whether I should go for this course? The answer is – ‘Definitely Yes’. It is worth giving it a try by clicking on “Buy Now” option. After enrolling yourself, you can start learning by going through sections and lectures. Just in case if you don’t find this course meeting your expectations, you can always ask Udemy to refund your money within 30 days of your enrollment.
