If you are totally new to AWS then take a look at some of the amazing tutorials we have on this community already:

You may not be ready yet to research how you can automate the provisioning of AWS through CloudFormation and Terraform IaC (Infrastructure as Code) but when you are you'll need to understand some core programming concepts.

JavaScript and JQuery by John Ducket is an old book (like 2014 old) but wow, what a breath of fresh air. Even if you aren't ready for JavaScript yet, the way the author visualises programming concepts like classes, properties, methods and events is the best I have come across so far in my quest for coding books that work with the right side of my brain.

I haven't read the HTML & CSS version from the author but if the Javascript version is anything to go by, it will be just as good!

The Amazon reviews for John's books are insane
