Course Description

What if you were no longer constrained by the capabilities of your laptop? What if you could get an SMS when a city garbage truck camera spots a missing a cat? This is all possible with cloud technology. This course will teach you how to integrate Amazon Web Services (AWS) into your data workflow. You’ll learn how to upload data to S3, AWS cloud storage. You’ll use triggers from your analysis to send text messages with AWS SNS. You will use Rekognition to detect objects in an image. And you will use Comprehend to decide if a piece of feedback is negative. By the time you’re done, you will learn how to build a pipeline, subscribe people to it, and send them text messages when an image contains a cat!

  1. Sharing Files Securely.

    Continue your journey in mastering AWS by learning how to upload and share files securely. You will learn how set files to be public or private, and cap off what you learned by generating web-based reports!

  2. Pattern Rekognition

    Finally, you will go beyond uploading, sharing and notifying into rekognizing using AWS Rekognition and other AWS machine learning services to recognize cats, translate language and detect sentiment. You will be capping off your learning journey by applying a real-world use case that mixes everything you've learned!

Data is the wiring that connects our society, but we are missing opportunities. I help people use data to improve things like ambulance routing and city planning. For the past 4 years, I served as Chief Data Officer at the City of San Diego. I’m good at writing Python and running high-level strategy meetings. I built an advanced technical team that can navigate politics. We help people get and leverage data for impact. Previously, I worked at Code for America and Puerto Rico, connecting businesses and government. Before that, I ran large engineering teams in the private sector. I came to the US from Ukraine when I was 10 years old. I lived in 5 countries and speak 3 languages.
