What is AWS?
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 200 fully-featured services from data centres globally.

Because we believe this is the future of technology, Social Hackers Academy is collaborating with AWS re/start to launch a tuition-free program available for vulnerable communities that we support daily such as refugees, asylum-seekers, migrants and unemployed people.

The live sessions will take place on weekdays for 4 months, starting on August 1st. The students will follow the curriculum for 4 hours per day with a live instructor and be part of the learning community on Discord.

What will the students learn?
• How cloud computing works
• How to use different programming languages
• AWS Cloud skills
• Build skills aligned with AWS Certification
• Soft Skills (Effective communication, Problem-solving, Teamwork and Time management)
What are the requirements to apply?
• No Technology Background is needed;
• Access to a computer and the internet;
