July 13

We’re going to be hosting another AWS training day next Wednesday, July 13. We’re planning for three hands-on lab sessions and some open office hours.

All labs will be held in room 1009 of the Mechanical Engineering Lab. Please register to reserve your spot. Computers in the lab will be available for use, or you may bring a laptop if you prefer.

AWS 101 Lab (9:00 – 10:30)

Learn the basics of the AWS web console. You will create an EC2 instance and make it work as a webserver. If there’s time, you can clone it, add an Elastic Load Balancer, and create a highly-available web server cluster.

AWS IAM Lab (10:45 – 12:15)

Walk through the functionality of AWS Identity and Access Management. This is specifically recommended for IT Pros supporting customers using AWS.

Web Hosting on AWS Lab (1:15 – 2:45)

How to use tools like S3 and CloudFront to offload traffic from existing servers to enhance your user experience and simplify operations.

Office Hours (3:00 – 4:30)

Bring us any questions you have about the service: account logistics, cloud platform selection, implementation challenges, business topics.
