In this project-based course, you will learn how to launch your own server at Amazon AWS Lightsail, configure your own SSH client and upload files to the server. Then, you will learn how to modify the server to access it privately. Further, you will learn how to change the server configuration to have a simple NodeJS game with both a backend and frontend started automatically and its content served through the Apache webserver. Note: To avoid distraction for setup during the course, we would recommend that you create an Amazon AWS account beforehand.
