Start Your AWS Cloud Quest Adventure!

This post explores Cloud Quest, a gamified approach to learning AWS. It includes a step-by-step video tutorial to solve the first challenge in the free Quest.

Published Apr 24, 2024
I was introduced to AWS Cloud Quest in my AWS re/Start class in 2022 when the first quest had just been released. It appeared to be quite similar to AWS JAM which I always look forward to at any AWS conference or Summit. I also liked the fact that this was an avatar-based game with great graphics and sound bytes.
It helped me learn while having fun! I realized that this was a great way to get hands-on with the AWS world for newbies as there are detailed steps to follow and learn from before the Do-It-Yourself section. I always introduce all of our technologists at Strategio to this gamified experience to gain AWS expertise in a fun way!
Let’s dive into Cloud Quest’s first challenge for the Cloud Practitioner role.
In this video tutorial, we will go through each step, and gain the knowledge and skills needed to solve it.
We will learn to access Skill Builder, enroll in the Cloud Quest — Cloud Practitioner course, and solve the first assignment. Let’s get started! 🎉
I also want to give a shoutout to Industry Quests. I was able to learn a lot about how to build effective solutions to common and specialized industry use cases such as Financial Services, Healthcare, and Manufacturing & Automotive industries.
Another thing to note is that when you complete all the assignments in a Quest, you earn official AWS Credly badges to showcase on your social media.
