Hello friend, and welcome to the Open Up The Cloud System! 👋

What is the Open Up The Cloud system?

The system provides a step-by-step guide to get your start and grow your career in cloud.

The system doesn't comprise of much original content itself, but instead aims to give a structured overview for how to get into cloud, and links to any good existing content and communities.

The system is broken down into several steps. You can start at any step, but if you feel "lost" return to the start and work back through each step to regain your confidence.


The system has a companion Slack community to help you on your journey. This community is about building your career in cloud. Getting direction, building focus and discipline, and achieving whatever the goals you set yourself in tech, cloud and life. This community is not tech oriented. There are many other great communities for tech. This community exists more for career support and guidance. We’re here to support you in building an amazing life for yourself, your families and those around you. Learn more by reading the Open Up The Cloud mission.

We look forward to sharing your “I got the job!” post!
