During the past week I've been working on the following chapters of the O'Reilly training series:

  • Resources
  • Platform - Design Principles & Patterns

They cover topics such as:

  • Cloud concepts
  • An introduction to Amazon VPC
  • VPC design patterns
  • Integration strategies for on-premise IT
  • AWS economic centre
  • AWS architecture centre
  • AWS support
  • AWS Marketplace

This week, the focus will be designing for performance and scalability, with a particular focus on compute, storage and database families of web services.
