Amazon has launched an immersive game to train in its AWS cloud

The Amazon cloud also provides Metaverse sales sirens. AWS is launching a surprisingly serious game, immersing users in a virtual city, to better train them with the various cloud services it offers.

“Metaverse” is undoubtedly the “buzz word marketing” this year 2022. For those who doubt it, Amazon is providing new proof of this by launching a new training experience on its AWS Cloud.

AWS Cloud Quest: Cloud Practitioner is an online role-playing game for those starting an IT career or those (developers, administrators, project managers) who are making their first step into the cloud. AWS Cloud Quest teaches the basic concepts of cloud computing by inviting the user to create their avatar and then travel to a virtual city where they must shoot flying drones and above all solve problems. challenge (thanks to cloud services) to collect gems and advance in his quest. The apprentice player earns points by creating simulations and solving puzzles using AWS services. The goal is to learn by playing and having a real hands-on AWS experience by playing.

AWS Cloud Quest intentionally moves away from traditional passive content. We want to make abstract cloud computing concepts real through interactive and hands-on activities that allow students to instantly move from theory to practice. said Kevin Kelly, Director of Cloud Professional Education Programs at AWS. ” Throughout their journey, aspiring players understand the cloud by exploring core AWS services and categories (e.g., computing, storage, database, and security services) and developing basic solutions. cloud. This game is also an interesting and fun way to prepare for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam. “.

The initiative is original and different from traditional methods that are mainly practiced in competing clouds. It’s an original way for AWS to stand out, to introduce a new population to AWS by playing and surfing today’s metaverse marketing buzz. What will undoubtedly inspire competition in the future is because the idea is so attractive.

Note that AWS also launched this week a new ultra-accessible content for its “AWS Educate” training site. This cloud discovery facility has been completely redesigned and includes new, more interactive courses and hands-on labs accessible from the age of 13!
AWS Educate is designed for enthusiastic people who have never worked in the cloud but are learning on their own through self-study.

These two new offerings can help individuals increase their skills and employability. We continue to change how students develop their practical knowledge and skills in the cloud, meet them where they are and bring knowledge to everyone by making these programs free. added Kevin Kelly.

These two initiatives (AWS Cloud Quest and AWS Educate for All) are part of the larger AWS investment program. to train 29 million people in Cloud technologies by 2025.
