Hosting a simple website doesn't have to be hard or expensive.  In this class, we'll cover:

- A brief overview of cloud computing and Amazon's unique micro, 'pay as you go' pricing.

- How to create an AWS account and use the 'Free Tier' for one full year.

- A hands on example where you'll setup a simple, static website using the Simple Storage Service (S3), and share it with the world, for free.

- How to create and edit basic HTML files using free software and upload them to your web site.

- BONUS: Have a domain?  Learn how to create a sub-domain and point it to your new S3 website to make it easy for others to find.
