Transcript

Hello, and welcome to this course where I will be examining various options for operating programmatically with AWS, including Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs; Software Development Kits, or SDKs; and the AWS Command Line Interface, or CLI. I will also briefly introduce the concept of Infrastructure as Code, or IaC, and explain how it can be used to provision resources in the AWS cloud.

Before we get started, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Danny Jessee, and I am one of the trainers here at Cloud Academy, specializing in AWS and AWS certifications. Feel free to contact me with any questions using the details shown on the screen, or you can always get in touch with us here at Cloud Academy by sending an email to support@cloudacademy.com, where one of our Cloud experts will reply to your question.

This course is ideal for developers, system administrators, or anyone else who is looking to learn different ways to automate or scale their interactions with AWS for tasks like provisioning and managing resources in ways that are simply not possible when using the browser-based console.

The objective of this course is to provide a high-level introduction to AWS APIs and SDKs; the AWS CLI; and the concept of infrastructure as code. Each of these options provide different mechanisms for provisioning and operating in the AWS cloud without having to use the AWS console.

As a prerequisite to this course, you should have a basic understanding of AWS and its services. You should also have some exposure to interacting with a command-line shell or terminal using an operating system such as Windows, Linux, or macOS.

Here at Cloud Academy, we strive to keep our content current to provide the best training available.
