Nice lab. Give's a decent intro into how S3, Dynamo, and CloudFormation. You get a lot more from it if you carefully read the scripts provided and poke around a bit in the AWS Management Console more than they suggest.

I had different expectations. This was simple about creating a new instance, an S3 bucket and and dynamoDB table ... the rest was done for me ... I was hoping to learn HOW to interact with those, not simply run a completely configured instance that does all of it.

There's some good information here. It would be helpful if the instructions/description were available after the lab was over for review. Much of the "magic" of putting the uploaded user content into S3/DynamoDB is hidden. Setting up the AWS services is fairly straight-forward, but the challenge is how to then use those services smoothly,. More interaction with the code that's doing that would be good. It would also be very useful to know how to have less than fully public content in S3 (uploaded user content that's not universally viewable).

Slightly ambiguous instructions. e.g. the section using CFN indicates you should enter specific names for the buckets and table rather than the ones you created earlier. Also references a KeyPair you haven't used in the lab beforehand. No mention of waiting for ELB healthchecks to complete/succeed before trying to browse to application.

Micro instance had errors when uploading images and after finally managing to upload 1 file, the S3 URL didn't seem to work. Default URL was s3.amazon.com/bucknetname/filename . Hand to append the region name to get it to work: s3-us-west-2.amazon.com/bucknetname/filename I had to manually change the template and application files which didn't get propagated into the CloudFormation stack so the final product managed to upload things properly but couldn't display the images. There should be FAQ or possible problems for possible problems.
