Join Brandon Rich for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Amazon Web Services: Deploying and Provisioning.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this course, you should be comfortable with a web application framework such as Ruby on Rails, Python Django, or .NET. The AWS services covered in this course can be used to deploy a wide selection of application types, but since we can't cover every use case, we'll look at each AWS deployment option through the lens of a Ruby on Rails app running on Amazon Linux. If you're unfamiliar with Rails, fear not, the things you will learn about Beanstalk, OpsWorks, and the other AWS services will apply regardless of your preferred platform. You should also have some understanding of git fundamentals, SSH, YAML, basic shell scripting, and web servers like NGINX and application servers.
I'll go into detail where necessary. You'll also need some basic fluency with the command line. For these sections, I'll be on a Mac terminal. If you're working on Linux, you'll be right at home. The AWS-specific tools are cross-platform. So Windows users should not see any variation there. However, you will still need to know the Windows equivalent of Linux commands such as LS, cat, and SSH. Finally, there are a few things you'll need to have in advance of starting. First, git command-line tools. You'll also need a text editor and an AWS account.
This course is also part of a series designed to help you prepare for the AWS Certified SysOps Administrator – Associate certification exam.
