Working with Amazon EC2 Container ServiceGo to Lab
This lab introduced me very well to the concepts and terms related to ECS, to the ECS console and how to navigate around it. I did expect it would be a little more in-depth regarding the features and inner workings of ECS, but it is a very good introductory lab if you want to learn how ECS works and how you should work with it,
This is about as basic as the free one and I just wasted my coupon.
Excellent work fine to understand the ECS basics
Bit out of date
Good intro lab - could have gone a little deeper and added some complexity. Maybe in an advanced section at the end.
the sequence of steps is a bit confusing
There was an error showing for access in the ELB page on one of the tabs --- basically saying my user didn't have permissions to do something. I thought I'd set up the IAM roles wrong (those steps no longer match what the screen is asking). Anyway, it worked fine, but I did kill my task and start over when I saw the error. The lab is good but I still have little idea about the relationship of the container creation and and the pieces in the container service. I think it would be better to actually create a docker container manually in order to better understand the relationship. This is a fundamental class and I suspect most folks at this time are like me, we are trying to figure out the value proposition and how it works with the AWS services. Giving us a json file and saying click a button doesn't help understand what I've actually done.
