The Cloud Walkabout

My journey into the world of AWS

About the Book

I started about a year ago to get heavily involved with AWS. It has been an incredible journey. I have stumbled a few times along the way - but have also learned a invaluable amount of knowledge.

Knowledge is not something that should be hoarded - but rather shared, for everyone's benefit.

This is my journey.

Join me in my thoughts, dilemmas, challenges and solutions that I encountered along the way.
