100DaysOfCloud Ideas List

The purpose of this repo is to provide a list of micro-projects to help people with their #100DaysOfCloud Challenge.

Contributing to this project list:

Please do your best to tag your commits

When you open a ticket it will have a Github Issue ID eg. 23

You should reference this number both in your branch name and your PR's commit message.

Including this number will keep track of your commits in the project idea's Github Issue.

eg. Branch Name

git checkout -b 23-COM01-AWS100

eg. Commit Message

#23 — Launching an EC2 instance

We may edit your project submissions in your Pull Requests

When you submit a Pull Request (PR) we may edit the following without notice:

  • Typos
  • Markdown formatting
  • Difficulty Level

We do this to expedite the review process so your project is quickly accepted into the Ideas repository.

Which Cloud Service Providers?

Projects covered could be for:

  • Microsoft Azure
  • Amazon Web Services
  • Google Cloud Platform

We aren't limited to the big three, but thats where you'll see the most examples since IaaS have the most cloud offerings.

We may be weary of third-party cloud services since the goal of these projects is to learn a concept first and a product last.

What is the difficulty and time commitment for these projects?

Projects are labeled based these four levels:

  • Level 100 (Introductory)
  • Level 200 (Intermediate)
  • Level 300 (Advanced)
  • Level 400 (Expert)

The goal is to provide micro-projects that can be completed in minutes to hours and worst case a day. The difficulty generally indicates greater time commitment. For more difficult projects more instruction can be provided to reduce the time commitment. Projects may suggest the time it takes to complete the project
