Learning about security is something that is, or should be, on everyone’s todo list. As we look to the public cloud for new ways to deploy and manage infrastructure, we also have to look at how new security models and procedures have to come along with it. An interesting way to make this easier and more widely adopted is to add some gamification or some sort of interactive learning tools to make the journey more enjoyable. The flAWS challenge is a great way to accomplish this type of learning.
