Amazon launched an online role-playing game. The aim of designing the game is to make it easier for people to learn cloud-computing skills. The game, AWS Cloud Quest: Cloud Practitioner, allows users to create their own avatar who moves through a virtual city, helping its denizens solve technology-related cloud issues.
Users earn points for completing Amazon Web Services simulations and puzzles that will unlock such things as new character styles, pet companions, city themes, and virtual items like a hoverboard and a unicorn pool float.
Amazon said Cloud Quest was launched to help explain “core AWS services and categories,” including computing, storage, database, and security services, as well as to guide the building of basic cloud solutions.
In addition to the smart online game, Amazon has launched other cloud-training services. AWS offers multiple certifications to help employees advance their careers and cloud expertise.
