Amazon AWS Documentation
Anybody who has worked with Amazon AWS for more than a day, knows that AWS has great documentation. What many people haven’t seen though (thanks to Google) is the front page of the AWS Documentation website.
Each and every AWS service is listed there, conveniently organized in groups. It features guides, API references, tutorials, projects, SDKs and toolkits, as well as general resources.

For some of the services, there are even more detailed, but still simple, guides. For example, have a look at the AWS S3 In Plain English.
