Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name's Tom Compagno, and welcome to my course, Developing Applications with AWS Lightsail. I'm the VP of Technology at Contravent. AWS can be a complex ecosystem of technologies to learn. Last count there were over 200 different services, some basic, some complex, many with overlapping features. In this course, we're going to take things back to the basics with some AWS offerings that will get you up and running and building applications in no time. We're going to learn how to leverage a number of AWS Lightsail capabilities such as virtual private servers, load balancers, and even databases. We'll learn how to connect to Cloud9, a cloud‑based IDE to our Lightsail server, and code without the need to run an entire software stack on our local machine. We'll also learn by building, meaning we'll stand up a scalable WordPress site that leverages all these components and how it can be used in a production environment. Make sure to sign up for your own AWS account and bring your basic coding skills and join me on this journey to learn all about AWS Lightsail in this course, Developing Applications with AWS Lightsail, at Pluralsight.
