An online role-playing game designed to help people learn more about cloud computing was introduced by Amazon on Tuesday. Simulators and puzzles can be completed in a virtual metropolis, and points can be earned for solving IT problems in the cloud.
An online role-playing game developed by Amazon to help individuals learn the basics of cloud computing was made available to customers today, the retail giant announced.
Players design their own avatars for the game AWS Cloud Quest: Cloud Practitioner, and then wander around a virtual city, assisting the locals with their cloud technology problems. To gain additional character fashions, pet companions, city themes, and virtual products like a unicorn pool float, gamers must complete Amazon Web Services simulations and puzzles.
As a cloud practitioner, you’ll go on a mission to help the inhabitants of town transform their city utilising cloud technologies,” AWS said in a YouTube video launching the game.
“The server running my weather app keeps crashing!” a hardhat-wearing cartoon character tells a user in a video. “Can you kindly assist me?”
Among the “fundamental AWS services and categories,” according to Amazon, are computing, storage, database and security services as well as guidance on how to develop basic cloud solutions.
Additional cloud-training services have been added to Amazon’s wacky online game. A wide range of certifications are available to help AWS employees enhance their careers and cloud competence in the company.
