🆕Another Post Update
First, second, third and forth, fifth and sixth time coupon got used up. So I updated the link below again with 50 more free coupons.
DEV.to has been a great experience for me since previously I wanted to create web-dev content online but it was met with little reception. I was personally discouraged for months to create free public content because it was hard to get anyone to look at it.
DEV.to's warm community has given me the confidence to keep producing more free online content because I get direct engagement and see the knowledge shared is put to use.
So as a thank you I am going to make this Udemy course free to Dev.to users. I'll explain how I'm making it free down below but let me tell what you're getting.
I wanted to give you a useful skill that has made me lots of money which is how to setup web-apps the right way on AWS. Lots of startups deploy at first to Heroku or Linode or Digital Ocean but are faced with moving to AWS when they outgrow these simple server providers but they don't know how end-to-end setup a production environment. I've been paid a few thousands of dollars (USD) multiple times just to set up a production environment for a couple of days of work to save startups weeks figuring out on their own. So I hope this course will enable you to do the same.
What I say to grads or junior devs is Heroku is not enough. An easy way to tell if a junior is going to be a good hire is if they've provisioned their own server because of its a frustrating, time-consuming and error-prone process.
If you get through that end-to-end it shows you have the resourcefulness to work through hard problems and you won't need to be your hand-held on the job which is what companies really want.
The first interview question I ask when hiring full-stacker developers is always: "Have you provisioned your own web-server for production use?".
This is the Udemy course but doesn't click this link because the good one with the free coupon code is down below:
And here is a good look at what we are going to be building.
I'm not sure how many of you here want it for free and I do really want to just give it for free only to Dev.to users. So what I've done is created a coupon code that makes it a free course for the first 50 people who use the coupon. The coupon is embedded in the link to save you the trouble and so here's the link:
