Description

Although most AWS services can be managed through the console in Amazon's browser interface or via the APIs commonly used for programmatic access, there is a third way that, in many cases, can be very useful: the Command Line Interface (CLI). AWS has made software packages available for Linux, MacOS, and Windows that allows you to manage the main AWS services from a local terminal session's command line.

In this course, the Cloud Expert and Linux System Administrator David Clinton will tell you everything you need to know to get started with the AWS Command Line Interface and to use it proficiently in your daily operations. He will also provide many examples to clearly explain how command line connectivity really works.

Who should take this course

This is an intermediate course, as such you should already know the basic AWS concepts, and in particular of the services that described in this tutorial. Also, some experience with the Linux Command Line Interface is not strictly speaking necessary, but still quite useful.

If you want to boost your knowledge of AWS, EC2S3, and RDS, we strongly suggest you take our other AWS courses. Also, self-test questions are available if you'd like to test and increase your knowledge.

David taught high school for twenty years, worked as a Linux system administrator for five years, and has been writing since he could hold a crayon between his fingers. His childhood bedroom wall has since been repainted.

Having worked directly with all kinds of technology, David derives great pleasure from completing projects that draw on as many tools from his toolkit as possible.

Besides being a Linux system administrator with a strong focus on virtualization and security tools, David writes technical documentation and user guides, and creates technology training videos.

His favorite technology tool is the one that should be just about ready for release tomorrow. Or Thursday.
