7 Labs · 64 Credits · 7h 6m

AWS for Windows Windows programming

In this quest, you’ll use Visual Studio to build C# programs with Amazon SQS, Amazon SNS, Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, and AWS Security Token Service. You'll also use node.js to learn event-driven cloud programming with Amazon Lambda.

Creating Amazon EC2 Instances with Microsoft Windows

This lab demonstrates how to launch and configure a Windows virtual machine (instance) in the Amazon cloud. It will cover the use of Windows Amazon Machine Images (AMI’s) to launch Amazon EC2 Instances, bootstrapping using Powershell, creating Key Pairs for authentication, securing network access to Amazon EC2 Instances with Security Groups and attaching Elastic IPs to Amazon EC2 Instances to provide static Internet addresses.

Working with AWS CodeCommit on Windows

This hands-on lab gives you practice with AWS CodeCommit working from a Microsoft Windows development environment (Visual Studio Code) on an instance running in EC2. You will create a code repository in AWS CodeCommit. You’ll then create a local repository on the Windows instance and make some changes to it. Then you will synchronize (commit) your changes to the AWS CodeCommit repository.
