Join Robert Starmer for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Running Kubernetes on AWS (EKS).
- [Instructor] In order to follow along with this course, you're going to firstly need a computer and preferably one with command line capabilities. We tend to use the Bash command line utility fairly often within this environment. In addition, you're going to need the ability to install software, so you're going to have to have some level of administrative access to that machine as well. And because this is an Amazon-focused account, you are going to need access to an Amazon AWS account. We are going to be creating IAM policies, users, and roles and so either you're going to need to have the ability to do that, or somebody's going to have to be able to provide that for you.
In addition, having basic knowledge of the Kubernetes CLI is really going to come in useful. We will certainly show you all the commands, but it's just easier if you're more familiar with those particular concepts. In addition, we're going to be working with the command line, again, Bash is the choice for us. And if you understand Bash, that's the easiest, but, again, we will be providing you with those instructions. And lastly, we're going to be modifying some files and using those files to actually create some of the environments that we're working with, so access to a text editor is going to be useful.
We're going to be using a command line editor, so familiarity with Vi would be simplest, but any command line editor is going to be fine or you could even use a graphical editor as well, if you prefer.
