Description

Amazon Athena allows you to query data stored in S3 using SQL. This Amazon Athena playground lab provides you with an Athena sandbox for you to query COVID-19 data provided by the AWS COVID-19 data lake. The playground configures AWS Glue tables that are backed by the AWS COVID-19 data lake which is hosted on Amazon S3. You can query the Glue tables with Athena using SQL. Links are also provided to the AWS blog announcing the AWS COVID-19 data lake (including sample Athena queries to get you started), and the AWS QuickSight dashboard providing recent COVID-19 data visualizations.

The playground is a safe and secure sandbox environment for you to explore your own ideas, follow along with Cloud Academy courses, or answer your own questions all without the need to install any software on your local machine. The extended duration of this playground provides you with ample time to play to your heart's content. Have fun in the playground!
