Thanks for the heads up!
Absolutely love the AWS platform. Been using it for around 6 years.

Well worth people attending things like this when free to get an intro into the possibilities of the platform

No doubt the training materials will be available offline after the course, there is also a lot of resource on YouTube...

I have one q.. what on earth is AWS



Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. Explore how millions of customers are currently leveraging AWS cloud products and solutions to build sophisticated applications with increased flexibility, scalability and reliability.

In a nutshell rather than buying physical computers AWS allows you to have virtual computers across different parts of the world doing the same job. This saves organisations money as there a lot less overheads and maintenance.
Looks good, almost makes me wish I wasn't balls deep in MS stack.

Hah, sorry, didn't even realise my pun.
An excellent opportunity to expand your AWS knowledge or great as an introduction to find out what's available.
I would love to take part, but im working and cant get the day off. Does anyone know if this will be available offline after?
Yeah it's recorded, but you have to register to view it:
"Can't make the live event? Register and use the link to watch a recording at your convenience."
beanstalk - orchestration service
glacier - long term storage
puppet - (puppet labs) automation software
ruby - programming language
sap - software vendor
hadoop - a vendor with a collection of open source software
petabyte - a ton of data (or 2^50 bytes, or 1000 terabytes, or just over a million Gigabytes!)

ps: thanks for the link, will be registering for reference!

If you work in IT it shouldn't be hard to convince higher ups to allow it. Just start saying "cloud", "hyperconverged" and "lower computing costs" and their eyes will light up!
It's hard to emphasize how important AWS is in modern web development. They offer tools and services that previously only multinationals with giant in house dev teams could manage for an incredibly cheap price. Of course that means they've quickly become a scarily large and powerful company with far far too many people reliant on them now.
I Just want software that can transfer Windows 10 to a new drive.

Definitely. Knowing this stuff usually nets you a six figure salary after a few years if you plan your career well. But it's not for everyone.

Thanks for posting OP. Heated.

And when you consider Amazon earns billions more from AWS than from their retail operation, you know you'll have to use AWS at some point in your life.
6 x EC2 instances + 5 x RDB instances + 1 x new incompetent line manager who is terrified of the cloud = very little chance of this sysadmin attending.

what I will say is "RTFM". AWS has a wealth of very good support documentation. they can't give you the genius idea that's going to help you create an eCommerce empire from your dining room, but they will help you get that eCommerce platform running on one of the most resilient and "scalable" solutions available (if that's your bag).

oh, and their paid support tiers (even the cheapest) are fantastic. as someone who recently had their hand held through a step by step 04:00 Saturday morning restoration an entire Ubuntu EC2 instance I can attest to that fact. the chap had a live text conversation + screen sharing session with me from his call centre on the west coast of Australia. couldn't have been more helpful if he tried.

heat for effort.

Agree. Even if you don't enjoy it as a career (there's only so much SQL code I can look at in a day for example) 10 years at £100-£150k a year like I pay one of my main developers means you can retire early at 40, especially if you live in East Midlands. Even a pretty average Dev will take home £40k in private sector. I enjoy it which is a bonus and would work for free so I'll carry on for a few years yet. Certainly an easier job than teaching, or being a GP.

Ill be encouraging my children to learn programming skills, I think they'll surpass anything I could do.

Yup..AWS owns 30% of the market for cloud infrastructure. That is scary.

I use it daily, along with Veeam Backup and Replication (the server-end counterpart). It's very, very good.

Sounds interesting, does it work as installation software only?.

Or does it download as an ISO/Image File, and run via a CD/DVD?, and/or 'alternatives'? (such as Bootable USB Image File for example, etc?).

Or can it function via all the above?, thanx. :-)
Interesting looking potential future discourse OP, thanx. :-)

I've heard of Amazon's AWS thing a few Months back by chance (when I was researching something else entirely different), I had no clue at the time what AWS was, what it shop's for, and/or what exactly it was either, hehehe.

Your above should prove an interesting watch though (and even sweeter for the fact that it's also for free). :-)

And if it was possible to also download it in an offline mode for future reference too, then that would be the even more sweeter topping as well. :-)

How do I learn about this career path please. I will be Googling more on this too.

I am considering the change from Healthcare to this.

* Install on your source machine in Windows. There's a Unix version available too.
* Create your recovery media (removable drive / ISO). This can include your "non-standard" (i.e "not provided with the OS by default) drivers, or you can choose to omit them if you want.
* Define your backup destination (can be USB, or OneDrive now if you pay for the functionality).
* Run the backup.
* Boot from your recovery media on your destination machine.
* Choose the backup from the backup destination you chose previously. You can choose to include the non-standard drivers if the hardware is identical, or omit them.
* Let it run.

Great software for duplication or disaster recovery. It will even allow you to restore to a smaller HDD (i.e. SSD) by permitting partition resizing during the restore process.

It's improving with each release. A while back they added functionality to the recovery media which will enable and unlock the default Windows "admin" password, as well as erasing its password (if one was assigned). This is invaluable to me, as I'm not always the guy that built the Windows image, and trying to get people to document passwords is not always feasible.
