In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn multiple core offerings of Amazon Web Services (AWS). You will first learn how to create and deploy an AWS EC2 Instance which is a virtual server. Then we will move on to creating a Database using Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS). We will then look at file storage using AWS Simple Storage Service (S3). We will look at how to manage users and provide shared access to our AWS account using AWS Identity Access Management (IAM). Then you will look at how to implement serverless technology using AWS Lambda, we will be creating a REST API using API Gateway. In the end, we will look at AWS Cloud9 which is AWS's on-cloud Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The project will get you hands-on with most popular cloud platform out there, Amazon Web Services (AWS). Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
