The Open Guide to Amazon Webservices

I hear people talk about JavaScript fatigue, the constant churn of new frameworks, tools and libraries in the JavaScript ecosystem makes it difficult to keep up. I must say that I have the same feelings regarding Cloud, every week Microsoft, Google or Amazon announce a new PaaS, SaaS, FaaS,… offering.

A great resource to help you understand what’s going on inside the Amazon cloud space, is the Open Guide to Amazon Webservices.

From the github page:

A lot of information on AWS is already written. Most people learn AWS by reading a blog or a “getting started guide” and referring to the standard AWS references. Nonetheless, trustworthy and practical information and recommendations aren’t easy to come by. AWS’s own documentation is a great but sprawling resource few have time to read fully, and it doesn’t include anything but official facts, so omits experiences of engineers. The information in blogs or Stack Overflow is also not consistently up to date.

This guide is by and for engineers who use AWS. It aims to be a useful, living reference that consolidates links, tips, gotchas, and best practices. It arose from discussion and editing over beers by several engineers who have used AWS extensively.
