DynamoDB Workshop CloudFormation Template: Create an Amazon EC2 instance running the Amazon Linux with the applications required for running the DynamoDB workshop.
This lab builds a complete serverless application that demonstrates how to convert text-to-speech using Amazon Polly.
The lab demonstrates how to use Amazon RedShift to create a cluster, load data, run queries and monitor performance. Note: Students will download a free SQL client as part of this lab.
This lab takes you through how to create an Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volume, attach it to an Amazon EC2 instance, take a snapshot of the volume, and increase the size and IOPS.
This lab demonstrates how to access and manage AWS services in three ways: through the AWS Management Console, the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and the AWS Software Development Kit (SDK). You will use one or more of these three options to access Amazon S3, Amazon EBS, Amazon EC2 and Amazon CloudWatch.
This lab introduces the concept of Elastic Load Balancing (ELB). In this lab you will use ELB to load balance a set of web servers in an Availability Zone. You will launch a pair of Amazon EC2 instances, bootstrap them to install web servers and content, and then access the instances independently using Amazon EC2 DNS records. Next, you will set up ELB, add your instances to the ELB, and then access the ELB DNS record to watch your requests load balance between servers. Finally, you will look at ELB metrics in CloudWatch. To successfully complete this lab, you should be familiar with the AWS Management Console.
This lab provides the basic hands-on experience of Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling -- setting up Auto Scaling to automatically launch compute instances in response to conditions that you specify. You will use Auto Scaling via the AWS console to create the basic infrastructure of a Launch Configuration and an Auto Scaling group. You will test the configuration by terminating a running instance and viewing the results as Auto Scaling responds by scaling up and starting another instance. For the lab to function as written, please DO NOT change the auto assigned region.
In this lab, you will build a Fact Skill in the Amazon Developer Portal, then build a Lambda function to handle notifications from Alexa. You will use a sample Fact skill for this lab, which you can use as a template for your own Skill after completing the lab. You will use both the AWS Console and the Amazon Developer Portal in this lab. You do not need an Alexa device. Prerequisites: To successfully complete this lab, you should be familiar with AWS Lambda through taking the introductory lab. Familiarity with Node.js programming will be helpful, although full solution code is provided. You will need to have/create a no-cost, no-credit-card-required account in the Amazon Developer Portal. Familiarity with the Amazon Developer Portal and the Alexa Skills Kit is helpful, though not required. You do not need an Alexa device for this lab.
AWS Elastic Beanstalk provides a quick and easy way to deploy your web applications to the AWS cloud without requiring knowledge of the individual pieces that make up the infrastructure. This lab demonstrates the common steps of developing a web application and deploying it to production on AWS, using the EB command line interface. In this lab you will learn how to deploy a simple web application continuously using the Elastic Beanstalk Command Line Interface (EB CLI) in two ways, Rolling Deployment and Blue/Green Deployment. The lab also demonstrates many interesting command line tools to interact with, monitor, scale, and ssh into your running Elastic Beanstalk deployment completely from the command line. Prerequisites: for success with this lab, you should be familiar with systems administration of Linux servers, have comfort with Unix/Linux text editors, and should have at least taken the lab "Introduction to AWS Elastic Beanstalk".
The lab provides a basic understanding of Amazon Route 53. It will demonstrate the basic steps required to get started with Route 53, including creating, editing, and deleting simple DNS records within a Hosted Zone (HZ), and creating and testing simple health check and associated failover records. Prerequisites for this lab: basic understanding of IP networking, DNS addressing and host name resolution. Students should also have taken the following three labs at a minimum prior to taking this lab: 1) Introduction to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), 2) Introduction to Simple Storage Service (s3), and 3) Introduction to Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).For the lab to function as written, please DO NOT change the auto assigned region.
