Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting PaaS Products.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this course, you should be familiar with some of the basic cloud computing concepts. Possibly you've even gone through and taken this IaaS implementation and troubleshooting course that we also offer. It would be helpful if you were familiar already with logging into AWS from the console or even using the CLI because we're going to be doing some of those commands in our interactive opportunities. Next, if you have a background in application development, it certainly won't hurt. In fact, it might be helpful for you to understand at least some of the aspects about how would I go about deploying an application and what does it mean when we talk about uploading source code and working with, well, code in general? Lastly, it would be helpful if you also had some background in infrastructure automation, things like Chef or Puppet, because those are heavily relied upon when we get into tools like OpsWorks.
Now, if you'd like to follow along at home, you certainly may. What you'll need is an AWS account. My recommendation, set up a free tier account. Now, the accounts themselves aren't particularly free tier, but there's usually objects that you can deploy for free within AWS. Do keep in mind, though, some of the tools that we'll talk about in this class will charge you, so you'll want to make sure that you decommission those services as soon as you're done testing them to minimize your bill.
Make sure that you have the ability to log into the AWS console. That usually is going to be done by an HTTPS or SSL connection over your web browser. It also may be helpful to be able to use SSH, which is the secure shell which would allow you to log into things like Linux machines, or if you'd rather use Windows, you'll need to open up RDP.
