About the Book

This is an Agile-published book, which means you're purchasing it before it is completed (at a lower price). New chapters are published periodically, and you'll always be able to download the latest version at no extra charge.

What's "the Cloud?" What exactly are cloud vendors selling, and how can you get started using their services for yourself, or as part of your job? In this super-concise, super-friendly book, you'll learn exactly what "The Cloud" is all about, and how to perform some of the most common tasks in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.

You'll also learn the business models, jargon, and pitfalls of "The Cloud," enabling you to move on to more intermediate-level resources, books, documentations, and videos to continue your learning journey.
