FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)


Who is this Course for?

This course is meant for anyone looking to build a solid understanding of cloud computing strengthening their fundamentals in the domain. 

The course will be immensely helpful for developers, cloud engineers, DevOps engineers, platform engineers, site reliability engineers, engineering managers, product managers, or anyone who wants to prepare for any role in IT that has anything to do with cloud computing. 

The content in this course helps you understand the infrastructure on which modern-day distributed applications run, which will help you prepare for your system design interviews along with the Zero to Software architect learning track. It will help you master the cloud fundamentals, which will also help you nail your cloud certifications exams for platforms like AWS, Google Cloud or Azure.


Will this Course be Helpful In My Career Growth?

After having spent a decade in the industry designing and writing code, I firmly believe that every software engineer should have knowledge of cloud computing. It's the present and the future of application development and deployment.

Be it on-premises or on a public cloud, every business prefers to run its services on cloud infrastructure due to multiple technical and economic reasons, which I've discussed in detail in this course. There is an ever-rising demand for cloud experts and the knowledge of cloud computing gives you an edge over other engineers, subsequently increasing your pay scale and job prospects.


Are There Any Prerequisites to this Course? Do I Need to Have Coding Knowledge to Understand this Course?

There are no prerequisites to taking this course. No prior experience in cloud computing is required. Also, you do not need any coding knowledge for this course. The course provides a thorough discussion on architectural concepts with the help of several illustrations to help you understand the concepts better.


Why is this Course Text-based?

My courses are intentionally text-based. The text format of the course enables you to learn faster than the videos. Learning through reading is way faster than sitting through hours of videos. It is easy to take notes—no pausing the videos to take notes or screenshots of diagrams.

Also, my courses are frequently updated. New information is continually added. It is easy for me to update the text-based content as opposed to re-recording a video every time a tiny update needs to be made. Imagine that. It would be killing.


How Long Do I Have Access to the Course Content?

You will have two years of access to the course content from the date of purchase. 


Why Aren't You Offering Lifetime Access?

I would be happy to but cannot primarily due to two reasons:

1. I have significant recurring monthly expenses in form of platform fees, hosting charges, marketing, international tax compliance and other maintenance costs. Offering lifetime access would significantly spike the price of the courses. In order to keep the content affordable, I had to time restrict access to the platform.

2. The content of my courses is continually updated besides the new content that is added. The software design and development domain continues to evolve and as it evolves the courses get updated accordingly. With my courses, you'll stay on top of the latest developments in the domain. And, as you might have figured this demands continual time investment :)
