Welcome to Stelligent U
Welcome to the technical side of Stelligent University, Stelligent's onboarding program for engineers. This repo includes a series of learning modules designed to give cloud engineers practical experience working with AWS and related technologies.
The goal of this material is to prepare all of our engineers for their first engagements as Stelligent consultants. Any topic or principal presented here is part of our technical knowledge baseline: this is what we consider a "Minimum Viable Engineer". There are a lot of other ideas and technologies that you'll come across and need to know in your work. We can't fit it all in, though, and these are the essentials.

This is a series of lessons originally written for new Associate Engineers at Stelligent. The goal of this material is to prepare all of our engineers for their first engagements as Stelligent engineers. Any topic or principal presented here is part of our technical knowledge baseline: this is what we consider a Minimum Viable Engineer. There are a lot of other ideas and technologies that you'll come across and need to know in your career. We can't fit it all in, though, and these are the essentials.
The core of Stelligent U is modules 1-12, the series that makes up our baseline definition of a Minimum Viable Engineer. Other modules are also available that provide hands-on experience with tech beyond the baseline. We want to add more and more to those "continuous learning" modules as time goes by.
You'll find a handful of ways we present each topic. Most of the technical exercises are labs, where we want you to gain a surface level of exposure to a variety of AWS services and their most common or compelling features.
Labs within a lesson build on each other. Many lessons require the experience of previous lessons. Unless you're completely blocked, work through them in order.
When we provide materials for a lab -- e.g. CloudFormation templates or policy files -- start with those and add to them as requested.
Some topics also include retrospectives. These aren't always focused so much on a technical exercise. Our goal here is usually to get you to think more broadly about the technology at hand.
We also provide further reading for each topic. Find time to explore some of these materials more deeply. Pursue your curiosity. There are many excellent resources out there, and we particularly want you to learn more where the topics match up with your interests.
