Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Course requirements, part of Fundamentals of Cloud Data Storage.
- To follow along with this course, the requirements are pretty straightforward. From a tools perspective, you'll need a code editor and a number of browsers for testing. You can use whichever code editor you prefer. I'm going to be working with Sublime Text on the Mac, a really robust code editor available for both Mac and Windows. Of course, to explore a set of online services, like cloud data storage, it goes without saying that you'll need an internet connection. Most of our browser demonstrations and testing will be done with recent versions of standard based browsers like Google Chrome.
Although many of the cloud data storage platforms offer trial periods, in most cases, you'll need to enable billing, which requires either a credit card or a bank account. That's it for tools and real-world requirements. From a knowledge perspective, you should have a general understanding of how server code modules like APIs work. I'll walk through any advance code we use block by block, so you can understand what's going on under the hood. One last point, the absolute best thing you can bring to this course is your imagination.
Although I'm going to be going through a full exploration of cloud data storage platforms and implementations, you'll get the most benefit if you keep your mind open for other ways that you can apply the same lessons to your own needs.
