“We are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to provide free cloud computing skills training to people from all walks of life and all levels of knowledge, in more than 200 countries and territories,” Carlson said in a statement during the ‘AWS: re Invent 2020’ annual conference being held in digital mode.
