I have recently started using Amazon web services (particularly EC2 and S3) and I was wondering where can I find good tutorials. Amazon seems to offer detailed explanations, but at this stage I need something closer to natural language. :)

    Why not try out YouTube for some simple video tutorials:

    You can explore more along the right column. Other than that the developer community as pointed out by Roy above seems to be the place to go.

    Here is another link which also lists a few more resources at the end of the article.

    One of the best resources for getting started with new adventures like this is the community of people already involved in it. It's similar to when people switch to Linux, the best way to get advice and help is from the Linux community. In this case, Amazon provides access to the Amazon Web Services community via the AWS Developer Forums.

    You might also like this .pdf tutorial created by a Computer Science professor from San Francisco State University. I don't know if it covers all the specifics of what you want to do, but it does give some instructions related to EC2.
