I started exploring Azure at the start of 2020 when my Google Cloud credits expired and I had to explore alternative platform for demonstrating hands-on usecases in TechPrimers. I got impressed initially with the developer experience in accessing the Azure Portal. And also,
The push Microsoft is taking to climb up the Cloud Wars!
In September 2020, I took the “Microsoft Cloud Skills Challenge” by Microsoft as part of their Ignite conference. This earned me a free exam voucher to take up an Azure certification — It lead to the increasing curiosity to explore about Azure services.

Last year, I mentioned about not attending the re:Invent 2019 Live from Las Vegas. This year, I still sit at the same view at home with everyone going through the same experience across the globe. I don’t think it’s a time to be proud about, however I feel we are lucky enough to sustain our work life remotely with less hassle even during this pandemic.
The mind boggling number of registered attendees (500,000+) shows the sheer amount of interest and popularity ofAc Amazon Web Services! Period!

When you don’t get to attend a conference, you get to watch it live from your couch! Along with that you get to live blog and do multi-tasking with the luxury of having your own privacy :). Here is the list of key services which were announced by Andy Jassy during the AWS re:Invent 2019 Keynote on December 3.

The first and most obvious AWS Service which we try out is the Amazon EC2. And it comes with many blindspots; let’s unfold them one by one.
This is the most generous amount which AWS can provide for a compute engine/VM. Amazon EC2 free tier page says “AWS Free Tier includes 750 hours of Linux and Windows t2.micro instances each month for one year. To stay within the Free Tier, use only EC2 Micro instances”.

I paid a visit to most of the sponsor booths and had good catch up with developers from some of the tools which I use. Below is my view:
The booth was open when others were just setting up their stalls. I have…
