We’ll start with a brief overview of cloud computing focusing on IaaS. Discussions topics will include compute, storage, database, networking, messaging, monitoring, and deployment services in both of the cloud computing platforms. These services encompass AWS EC2, EBS, S3, Lambda, DynamoDB, RDS, VPC, SQS, SNS, IAMand Azure virtual machines, Blob Storage, functions, SQL database, virtual network, queue storage, service bus, and active directory.
You will practice with technologies and tools used to work with both clouds, gaining hands-on experience through a class project that involves designing, coding, and deploying a cloud-focused tool or application. Students interested in an “IT-centric” project can use scripting languages such as Ruby or Python to set up and manage an AWS or Azure cloud. Students interested in a software development approach can use programming languages such as Java, C#, Ruby, or Go to develop and deploy an application that uses AWS or Azure cloud services or resides in the AWS or Azure cloud.
At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to
- Describe REST-based APIs.
- Demonstrate how to setup and configure AWS or Azure services.
- Explain how to use Amazon's AWS APIs for EC2, S3, Lambda, and other services.
- Explain how to use Microsoft’s Azure APIs for virtual machines, BLOB storage, functions, and other services.
- Cloud-computing concepts: scalability, cost, virtualization, IaaS
- Accessing AWS and Azure: the AWS and Azure consoles
- Using AWS and Azure services: using a programming library
- Compute: AWS EC2 & Lambda / Azure Virtual Machines & Functions
- Storage: AWS EBS, S3 / Azure Blob Storage
- Database: AWS DynamoDB, RDS / Azure SQL Database
- Networking: AWS VPC, Load Balancer / Azure Virtual Network, Application Gateway
- Messaging: AWS SQS, SNS / Azure Queue Storage, Service Bus
- Security: AWS IAM / Azure Active Directory
Experience developing programs in any of Python, Java, C#, Ruby or Go.
There will be an additional cost for accessing AWS and Azure capabilities for class projects. Cost may vary but is generally low.
