Video: Where to go from here

This course offered a broad survey of Amazon Web Services, but didn't cover every facet to its fullest extent. Reading the friendly manual is a great way to learn more. I'm going to share three useful links. The first is for official documentation which is a collected gateway to each of the services docs, the second for articles and tutorials, abstractly walks through a number of examples of each of the services. The final URL is for code examples and software developer kits for integrating AWS into applications. I recommend taking a moment and reading through the source code of the watermarking application, even if you're not a PHP developer.

The final URL is for code examples and software developer kits for integrating AWS into applications. I recommend taking a moment and reading through the source code of the watermarking application, even if you're not a PHP developer.

I made a point of clearly commenting the code to explain what's going on and why and wrote it in a procedural step-by-step style to improve readability. Feel free to use the logic in your own applications as well. The CloudWatch monitoring system also provides configurable alerts that react in metrics that you specify. Try creating some alerts like ten uploads in a minute triggering a notification to you. Another way to learn more is just by doing it. Set up your own web server and deploy either your own application or an open-source application.

Try using Amazon relational database service instead of MySQL. Finally, when you're done experimenting with the watermarking application, remember to turn it off or destroy it completely using the Management Console. This includes the EC2 server, the S3 bucket, the SimpleDB domain which you are going to have to use the browser client to do, the Amazon SQS queue and the SNS topic. This way you're not consuming resources that aren't actively being used. As I've learned, a clean site is a happy site.
